Public tour at Calvin Price State Forest scheduled for Dec. 15

BECKLEY, W.Va. – The West Virginia Division of Forestry will conduct a public tour at Calvin Price State Forest Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012. This is an informational tour for the public to learn about plans for a proposed timber management project prescribed to provide young forest habitat good for grouse, woodcock and the golden-winged warbler. The proposed harvest area is located on the west face of Beaver Lick Mountain, behind the yellow gate on the east side of Beaver Creek. This is the opportunity for the public to learn about the project in order to provide written input.

The tour begins at 11 a.m. Participants should gather at the maintenance area along the entrance road to Beaver Creek Campground. Bring substantial footwear, clothing appropriate for the weather, snacks and water. The tour will involve a one half to one mile hike mostly on old skid roads, and there are some hills along the tour path.

For more information about the tour, contact State Lands Manager Barbara Breshock at 304-256-6775 or 304-932-7105 or via email at Barbara.A.Breshock@wv.gov. For transportation purposes, please notify Breshock no later than noon, Thursday, Dec. 13, of your intent to participate in the tour.
