Geezer Forum heads to the PSW

| September 12, 2023 1:00 AM

The community is invited to learn (or re-learn) about the care of our natural environment at a special Geezer Forum being held today at the Pine Street Woods.

Guest speaker for this outdoor learning event, which begins at 2:30 p.m., will be Bill Love.

Love is a retired forester who worked for the U.S. Forest Service, Idaho Dept. of Lands, and Inland Forest Management. He serves as chairperson of the Forestry Committee for Kaniksu Land Trust. It manages the trees of Pine Street Woods.

Beside basics about PSW, Love will introduce us to the long-term forest management practices used by the Weisz Family (the original owners of this beautiful 181-acre parcel of forest) and now by Kaniksu Land Trust. Plus for those who are ready/able to stretch their legs, he will lead a casual walk along an ADA-accessible trail to extend our enjoyment of PSW.

For those who choose not to walk, Matt Honsinger, Folk School director for Kaniksu Land Trust, will have a surprise activity for everyone. We will gather at the PSW parking from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

The weather prediction is for sunny and mid-70s weather. There are benches available for sitting, but you might consider bringing your own chair also. Please join us.

If you don’t know where PSW is located, follow the Pine Street Loop Road to the top and you will see a sign to PSW on your left. Or Google PSW, or call Kaniksu Land Trust (208-263-9471) for directions.
