Since joining NYFOA and the Master Forest Owner Volunteer Program about ten years ago, Ken and Sharon Semanovich have been tireless in their active support >of NYFOA’s mission. Ken and Sharon have served on the Southern Tier chapter steering committee for several years and, because they do most things as a team, Ken and Sharon currently serve as co-vice chairs for the chapter. They play an important role in planning chapter woodswalks and other events, and ran a very successful mushroom workshop on their property last year, including a home-cooked lunch featuring the various mushroom varieties they grow themselves. Ken or Sharon also serve as “official photographers” for all chapter events and can be relied on to conduct woodlot visits as Master Forest Owner Volunteers whenever called upon to do so. NYFOA and the Southern Tier Chapter are indeed fortunate to have these New Jersey transplants on our team!
