DATE CHANGE: October 25th, Rain Date: October 26th, 2019
The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) has built a successful and popular Chainsaw Safety offering in our area. Now that we have graduated several Level 1 participants and see the demand for a higher-level Chainsaw Safety offering across the state, we are ready to offer a Chainsaw Safety Level 2 Workshop on Friday, October 25th from 9AM-4PM at the Law Farm in Dover-Foxcroft.
At the Chainsaw Safety Level 2 workshop, participants will be working in the Law Farm woodlot with saws and our presenter will cover several ways to work safely while utilizing this valuable tool. To take this offering, participants will have to have taken an introductory chainsaw safety course through the Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District or another organization (MOFGA, Hidden Valley Nature Center, Land Conservancy, etc.).
We will be hosting our returning presenter Sam Heffner, who will provide hands-on instruction, demonstrations and information. Sam Heffner has worked as a forest ranger with the Maine Forest Service for 12 years and has 8 years’ experience instructing Chainsaw Safety workshops to various organizations. Additionally, Sam was a professional logger for several years, and have competed regionally and nationally in the Game of Logging. PCSWCD is very excited to welcome Sam back for his 4th workshop with us!
Space is limited to 10 participants and we encourage folks who are interested in joining us to register soon, as we expect this course to fill. There is a registration fee required and if you would like to join us, give a call to our office at 207-564-2321 ext. 3 or email us at [email protected].
We will see you at the Law Farm!
