Why are there so many Yellow Birch trees around Sprague Road? How did there come to be a pocket of Pitch Pines near RLT’s Ephraim Hunt Ministerial Land? Why do Red Maples dominate our forested wetlands but multiple oak types thrive in our uplands? Come learn the science behind the diversity of Rehoboth’s forests at Rehoboth Land Trust’s annual meeting.

Following a few votes by members on RLT matters, guest speaker Emma Sass will reveal the core ecological principles that define the characteristics of a forest. Learn how to spot the factors at play in your own backyard and any forested area.

In addition to her position as Research Fellow at the UMass Dept of Environmental Conservation/ USDA Forest Service’s Family Forest Research Center, Emma is a writer, educator, assistant forester, and project manager. She also helps landowners understand planning strategies for protecting land. Come deepen your love of the forest with the Rehoboth Land Trust!
