Is there a link between global climate change and the pine beetle epidemic?
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — You don’t have to be an early-bird to attend this week’s meeting of the Summit County Forest Health Task Force. The group normally meets early Thursday morning, but in a shift from its regular schedule, the task force is hosting a Feb. 10 luncheon meeting featuring John Bennett, executive director of For The Forest, an Aspen-based group that’s presenting a ground-breaking symposium on forest health next week.
The meeting is set for 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Frisco Community Center, 110 Third Avenue South (at Granite) in Frisco. Forest Health roundtable meetings are free and open to the public. Attendees interested in partaking in a complimentary lunch of soup, salad and sandwiches should RSVP to Sandy Briggs at ForestHealthTF@aol.com or (970) 389-0987. (more…)
