LBL officials host Pisgah project tour

Staff report

Officials of the Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area have invited the public on a walking tour of the Pisgah Bay Project Area.

The project proposed by the Pisgah Bay Interdisciplinary Team plans to integrate ecology, education, recreation, wildlife, heritage, and silviculture, the science of forest management, to restore the oak-hickory and shortleaf pine tree stands native to the area. In addition, plans include removing invasive species. Proposed actions on approximately 5,160 acres include prescribed fire, herbicide treatment of non-native invasive species and timber treatments. That is intended to open the canopy and allow sunlight to reach the forest floor.

The tour will begin at the North Welcome Station, rain or shine, at 8 a.m. May 22. Vehicles will travel from there to tour areas where similar treatments have been implemented. Interested people are advised to wear walking shoes and bring their own snacks, water, tick repellant and sunscreen.

For more information, contact Dennis Wilson, forester, at denniswilson@fs.fed.us or 270-924-2070.
