The Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association (WWOA) and its partners WI DNR, Division of Forestry, UW-Madison Extension and Natural Resources Education Program, Dane County Extension, Glacierland RC&D and Seno K/RLT Conservancy are excited to announce that the regional conferences usually held around the state will be combined into one statewide virtual conference series open to all woodland owners.
A variety of topics of interest to woodland owners will be covered in three sessions offered on Saturdays – January 30, February 6 and February 13 – from 9 am until noon.
On January 30, hear from the new WI DNR Chief State Forester, learn about the Virginia Tech tree identification app – and yes it covers trees found in Wisconsin, and discover Native American historical sites that may be found on private lands.
On February 6, a diverse panel will discuss Wisconsin’s changing wood markets, learn about government programs to assist you, and hear about management practices for emerald ash borer and oak wilt along with updates on recent forest health issues.
On February 13, join us to congratulate Kirk and Cindy Dahl on becoming the 2020 Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year followed by information on wild turkey management, creating a invasive management plan, and hear the story of WI Woodland Owners Association’s Past President Steven Ring’s Tree Farm.
The conference will be held via Zoom. Don’t worry if you haven’t used Zoom before, they will be offering some practice sessions to help you become familiar with the software prior to attending the conferences.
