This conference is designed specifically for landowners in the Midwest. Topics will range from traditional woodland management techniques, timber taxes, game and non-game wildlife management (including monarchs) to soils and soil erosion in woodlands. Non-timber forest products such as maple syrup production, raising ginseng and mushrooms are also presented.
Dr. Sue Blodgett from the Iowa Monarch Conservation Consortium will speak about monarch habitat and conservation. More information about the presentation is here.
Concurrent sessions will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to manage woodlands using good stewardship principles.
