Experimental forest highlighted in SAF publication

“The Forestry Source,” a Society of American Foresters publication, highlights an experimental forest managed by Dakota Prairie Grasslands in its March 2017 edition.

The article, “Recognizing the Denbigh Experimental Forest’s Contribution to North Dakota Forestry,” explores the rich history of Denbigh, its diverse wildlife and potential for future use.

Denbigh Experimental Forest was established in 1931 on a site that was extensively over-plowed and overgrazed during the early part of the 20th century. It now provides hiking, horseback riding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, birding and wildlife viewing, and hunting. Communities and local schools use it for outdoor classroom experiences as well.
