Chainsaw Safety Training
September 18 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm
Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at the Van Scott Nature Reserve as we learn Chainsaw Safety with a Game of Logging instructor. The training focuses on introducing open face felling and the development of techniques to safely use it. Topics covered include personal protective equipment, chainsaw safety features, chainsaw reactive forces, bore cutting, pre-planning the fell, and understanding hinge wood strength.
There are two opportunities to learn:
Saturday, September 17: A Women and Their Woods Event
Sunday, September 18: Open to all
Space for both events is limited and prior registration is required. Event fee is $15 per person for Conservancy members or Women and Their Woods graduates; $25 for non-members.
