Hidden Valley Nature Center | Sat, Nov 6 | All Ages

SHARE:

Time: Sat, Nov 6, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center

Description:

This one day course is designed for folks who have some previous experience with a saw and are looking to practice skills that are beyond the Level 1 Course offering.  Much of the material from the beginner’s course will be reviewed, such as Personal Protective Equipment and safe handling, which will serve as a great and important refresher.  More attention will be paid to saw maintenance, and the primary focus will be put on cutting techniques for bucking and directional tree felling.  The goal of this course is for participants to leave prepared to do a significant amount of work with their saw.  This course will be great for folks who intend to manage their woodlot and process firewood.

Completion of a Level 1 training or a considerable amount of previous experience with a chainsaw is strongly recommended. Anyone with questions about their suitability for the course can contact the instructor, Tim Libby, at tim@midcoastconservancy.org.

Rain date is Sunday, Nov. 7.
