Friday: 1 – 3 pm Chautauqua Tent – Rusty Dewees Workshop for Comedians and Performers: If you are a new writer or have thought hard about beginning a writing or performing career, Rusty will dispense with your old shibboleths about how-to-write or act properly. In fact, he’ll jumpstart your career right in the workshop. “You can’t write wrong,” is Rusty’s motto and he’s been successful at proving it. You may not yet have written anything, but would simply like to try to get up in front of folks and present or even perform your own story. This will not be a critical session. Any feedback will be positive, focusing on how your work affected us. From this, the author/performer can make their own decisions on how to further develop their work.

1pm – 2pm Trapp Family Lodge Forest- Attracting Wildlife: Managing your woods and property to enhance bird and wildlife habitat. Vermont’s forests are home to some of the highest diversities of breeding birds in the continetal US. Many of these species are facing serious threats and stresses throughout their ranges, so how we manage our forests has the potential to make a big conservation impact. On a walk in the woods, we’ll look a bird’s-eye look at what makes high-quality habitat-from snags to understory trees to gaps in the forest canopy- for these colorful forest dwellers. We’ll also discuss creative options for how landowners can manage their woods with birds and other wildlife in mind when cutting firewood, planning a timber sale, or landscaping around a home. Kristen Sharpless, Conservation Biologist, The Audubon Society.
Trapp Family Lodge Forest: 2:00pm-3pm~ Healthy Forests and Harvesting Wood~ Managing woodlots for sustainable yields of forest products while promoting the health of the forest. Visit a forest where a harvest was recently conducted to discuss forest management oppotunities, constraints, ideals and realities. Discussion will explore: What is a healthy forest? How do you regererate and grow good trees? How do you decide which trees should be left to grow and which should be harvested? How do you harvest forest products sustainably? Keith Thompson, Forest, Parks & Recreation.
3pm-4pm~ Chautauqua Tent- Compost Happens! What it is, how it happens: how to make it work for you. It isn’t rocket science, it’s nature at work. We’ll show/tell you various ways to create compost, how to rescue ailing plants with it. How to put it to use. Your garden will love you for it. Kitty Werner & Mary Evslin
