DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District will hold a hands-on chainsaw safety level 2 workshop 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the Law Farm.

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. 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, Heffner was a professional logger for several years, and have competed regionally and nationally in the Game of Logging.

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 info@piscataquisswcd.org.
