On March 18, 2012, Jean-Louis Carmona from the VDWFC visited BMES to discus forest management. Contracts were signed and BMES became a participant in the Six Rivers National Forest funded road side fire reduction program. Plans were also hatched to include Jean-Louis Carmona in the line-up of experts to visit the USF Summer Station Intensive to lead a hands-on forest management workshop. Stay tuned for the announcement of full staff for our summer classes.
The next day, the BMES tree house committee took a tour of potential tree house sites throughout our 22-acre homestead. Commencement on our first tree house is July 1, 2012.
