Berea College is hosting the Society of American Foresters Annual Convention at the Berea College forest for a field tour for an inside look at this unique endeavor, which includes a horse logging operation and prescribed burn areas. The Berea College Forest is one of the oldest managed private forests in the United States having begun its efforts in 1897 with the dawn of the American conservation movement. Management efforts focus on wood, water, wildlife and recreation, with an emphasis on sustainability. Offering both classes and outreach programs related to forestry, one of its great values is as a resource to demonstrate and evaluate the results of long-term forest management in the Southern Appalachian Region.
