Description/Notes: 

This conference is dedicated to all who love and live in Pennsylvania's private forests. The Private Forest Landowner Conference is the first-ever comprehensive conference for private landowners in Pennsylvania. Whether you own five or 500 acres, you are one of nearly 740,000 Pennsylvania woodland owners who make decisions about the health and well-being of nearly 12 million acres of private forests. The Conference will focus on the conservation and management of healthy forests with the intent of bringing together people who want to demonstrate a commitment to forest sustainability. Conference presentation tracks, offered by regionally- and nationally-recognized experts, include: conservation options, invasive species, taxes, tending your woods, water quality, wildlife, woods in your backyard, and on and on. Exhibitors with informational and resource displays and demonstrations will be on hand to show case tools and services.
