Jim Finley Stewardship Day

October 1 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

To honor the memory of distinguished forest educator and visionary conservationist James C. Finley, the Foundation for Sustainable Forests is introducing a new annual event, the Jim Finley Stewardship Day.

On this day, we will come together at an FSF-conserved property for a project that is tied to the long-term health and resilience of the forest.

Projects could include maintenance or construction of a bridge over a run to allow for sustainable horse-logging, invasive plant management, trash cleanup, and other related projects.

FSF can supply the necessary tools and supplies to get the job done, but you are also encouraged to bring your own tools, work gloves, etc. Dress for the weather, but also for brambles, muddy terrain, etc.

More details to follow about location, project, and other logistics of the day. We will request that you RSVP for this event, so that we can plan the projects and tools according to the group size.

Jim Finley, FSF Board Member, distinguished Penn State Faculty, and founder of Penn State’s Center for Private Forests
