Winter 2014 Newsletter
On behalf of the Hastings Stewardship Council, we would like to wish everyone health and happiness for the new year!
We had a very good 2013 and capped it off with our Trenton Woodlot Conference. As with the previous Woodlot Conference, it was well attended and participants were impressed by the quality of the speakers. Although the weather for the afternoon field trip was a bit cold and drizzly, many brave souls ventured out into the bush to see and hear some fascinating talks and demonstrations. Thanks to all who came.
