NSWOOA field day in Pictou County cancelled

Due to an illness in the family, a Sept. 19 woodlot field day in Pictou County to have been hosted by Lloyd and Marlene Langille, has been cancelled.

Current plans call for the Nova Scotia Woodlot Owners and Operators-sponsored event to be held next fall at the Langille’s woodlot.

George Johnson, chair of the NSWOOA field day committee, said members had been excited about the opportunity to showcase the Langille woodlot, located in Marshdale, near New Glasgow. The 130-acre mixed woodlot has been profitably managed for over 40 years without the need of government assistance.

Mr. Johnson thanked the Langilles for their hard work in making preparations, those who had agreed to be presenters and others who had planned to participate.
