The Siuslaw Model Forest is located on Route 23, one of the most traversed pathways into the Catskill region, makes it easily accessible to major metropolitan areas to our south and north and an ideal location for an expanded educational program consistent with WAC’s mission of sustaining the ecological and economic value of forestland. The Siuslaw Model Forest provides innovative demonstrations in the field of agroforestry such as the cultivation of mushrooms and ginseng. The goal is to raise visitors’ level of knowledge of agroforestry and the different opportunities it can provide.
The model forest is managed by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Greene County and is part of the Agroforestry Resource Center. The ARC features a 5,000 sq ft educational facility with a classroom and exhibit area that hosts local events and workshops. Across the street from the educational facility is the 142-acre Siuslaw Model Forest.
