Natural resources professionals will share fundamental information to help landowners set and achieve goals, protect the health and beauty of their forests, protect their financial investments, and reduce risk.
Forests can provide both a lifestyle and living, but that almost always requires “active management” – actions such as timber harvesting, tree planting, thinning, grazing, weed control, and other activities for improving wildlife habitat, controlling erosion, fire suppression and fuel treatment, and road and trail maintenance.
Active management creates healthy forests that resist tree-killing insect infestations, diseases and wildfire, and become good wildlife habitat.
Registration is $20 per person/$30 per family. Lunch can be purchased for an additional $10 each, to benefit the local Future Farmers of America. Please call so lunches can be prepared accordingly.
