Forestry Assn. plans May 2 meeting


DOVER – The East Central Ohio Forestry Association (ECOFA) will meet May 2 at 7 p.m. in Dover Public Library, 525 N. Walnut St., Dover.

Rick Stahn will give a reflection on his career with the U.S. Forest Service. Stahn had a long and successful career in several National Forests, culminating in his being the director (i.e., “District Ranger”) of a large tract of forest in one of the southwestern National Forests. He will address some of the challenges and successes of working for this massive organization, including how timber sales are conducted, and other aspects of managing public forest land.

The meeting is free and open to the public.
