ENTS Fall Rendezvous 2010
October 16, 2010
10:00am - 9:00pm
Friends of Mohawk Trail State Forest (FMTSF) and the Eastern
Native Tree Society (ENTS) wish to announce a special program at
Mohawk Trail State Forest (MTSF) scheduled for October 16,
2010. The annual Eastern Native Tree Society (ENTS) Rendezvous will
be held on October 16th at Mohawk Trail State Forest (MTSF) from
10:00AM to 4:30PM and continue at the Charlemont Inn from 5:00PM
The daytime event will feature a
climb and modeling of the Jake Swamp white pine, New England’s
tallest accurately measured tree. Will Blozan, President of ENTS,
from Black Mountain North Carolina and Bart Bouricius, a rainforest
canopy structure builder will be making the climb. A short
interpretive walk will follow the climb to showcase some of the
other trees of MTSF, the forest icon of Massachusetts. The walk will
include a discussion of how the trees are measured and the uses made
of the resulting data. Attendees of the conference are invited
witness the tree climb. Meeting place is the headquarters of Mohawk
Trail State Forest. Time is 9:30AM.
Following the climb and interpretive walks, we will
gather at 5:00PM at the historic Charlemont
Inn, Charlemont, MA. Hor d’oeuvres will be featured from
5:00PM until 6:00PM at which time we will have a buffet dinner. If
you plan to have dinner, you must register with the Charlemont Inn.
Contact the Inn. You may also send an email to Robert T. Leverett at
firstname.lastname@example.org registering for dinner.
At 7:30PM there will be a concert celebrating
nature and the trees. Attendance of the concert is free,
though donations are appreciated in whatever amount you are willing
to give. You can donate to ENTS or the Charlemont Inn Preservation
