Piscataquis conservation district lauds Leahy, UMaine student volunteers

In their November cooperator’s newsletter, the Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) highlighted a critical partnership between the district and Jessica Leahy, a University of Maine professor in the School of Forest Resources. Leahy, a long-time cooperator with the PCSWCD, facilitates hands-on learning opportunities for UMaine students while supporting the district’s goals. Recent student projects include development of a forest management plan for the district’s Law Farm, building a bridge on a public hiking trail at the farm, and updating the district’s demonstration forest trail maps to make georeferenced files available online.
