#1)  Attending the 2017 Wild & Woolly Forest Festival?

Postby Matt Markworth » Tue Apr 18, 2017 10:26 pm

All,

Just checking if any other ENTS are attending this Georgia ForestWatch event on Saturday, April 29th, 2017.

I signed up for Jess's old-growth hike and Dr. Joan Maloof of the Old-Growth Forest Network will be speaking. Should be fun!

Matt,

  While you're there, don't forget to pan for some gold. Dahlonega is the site of the first major U.S. gold rush. A U.S. mint was established there in 1837. In fact, the expression "thar's gold in them thar hills" came from Dahlonega when panners were leaving the region for Sutter's Mill in California, and a government man wanted to remind them that there was still gold in the hills around Dahlonega. Georgia's capitol building in Atlanta is covered in gold from Dahlonega supplied by volunteer panners. I was involved, but embarrassed to admit how little I contributed.

Bob,

Good to know, thanks!

One can never have enough gold on hand for new laser rangefinder purchases...
