New Lisbon School Board Moves Ahead with Plans for School Forest
Plans are in the works to make the New Lisbon school forest accessible. On Monday night, the school board voted to go ahead and start to gather bids from different companies to clean out the forest. Superintendent Dennis Birr said that this means they will start to clear out dead foliage and thin out the trees. Any wood taken out of the forest in the logging process and is sold, the money would have to go back into the School Forest Activity Fund. The hopes from cleaning out the forest would be more education classes and have students care for it in the future. The Necedah School District is thinking about doing something similar with their school forest, which neighbors New Lisbon’s forest. Birr said there might be some discussion with Necedah to see if where they are at with their plans and see if the two schools will want to work together to make both forests available to students and other citizens.
