2019 Forest Landowners Conference

Working Woods for Today and Tomorrow

Owners of large and small woodlots can learn how to better manage and enjoy their property at the 4th biennial Forest Landowners Conference to be held March 22-23 at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center in State College, PA. Sponsored by the Center for Private Forests at Penn State and its partners, this two-day event brings together the best tools, instructors, resources, and connections to equip Pennsylvania’s forest landowners with the ability to make informed decisions that ensure the present and future well-being of their woods. A carefully crafted lineup of presentations, keynote speakers, tours, workshops, and exhibitors will inspire, educate, and build the growing community of forest landowners committed to caring for their woods.

One of the main features of the conference is the nine learning sessions with 11 presentation offerings at each session. The breadth and diversity of presentation offerings provides attendees with the opportunity to learn about topics relevant to their needs and interests. Topics range from forest health, wildlife, water, financial, legacy planning, and small acreage opportunities to drones, charcoal, prescribed fire, pollinators, and wildlife diseases.
