SOUTH CHINA — Two harvest information meetings about the China School’s forest will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1, according to a news release from Anita Smith, a local forest steward.

Harold Burnett from Two Trees Forestry is the forester overseeing the project and will be at both meetings to share the plan and answer questions.

The first session will be held from 10 to 10:45 a.m. at the China Town Office portable, 571 Lakeview Drive, South China.

Smith and another local forest steward Elaine Philbrook will answer questions and share the history of the school forest; coffee and light snacks will be provided.
