The Four Rivers Forestry Committee invites the public to Breakfast with a Forester from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Friday, July 19. Join Travis Dunn, Indiana Department of Natural Resources District forester, and Doug Brown, ACF, with Multi-Resource Management, for an informal breakfast at Denny’s Restaurant, 3850 Newton St., Jasper.

District foresters from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Forestry are professionally trained to manage forestland. A district forester can help start the management of forested land by visiting woods and recommending a best course of action to meet goals. The foresters administer both state and federal programs that provide technical assistance, property tax incentives, and cost-sharing incentives for sustainable management. There is no cost associated with the services of a district forester.

Multi-resource management assists forest landowners in managing and maintaining a healthy and productive forest ecosystem, while providing a sustainable supply of high-quality hardwood timber from their forest. Multi-resource management’s foresters are private consultant foresters; they provide professional forestry services and their fees are paid for by the landowners who hire them.

Breakfast with a Forester is sponsored by the Four Rivers Forestry Committee. A variety of foresters, including the IDNR District Foresters, Purdue Extension foresters, industry and consulting foresters will be present at the breakfast, depending on the month. Locations will vary. Call 812-482-1171, Ext. 3446, with questions.
