The Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences and the Center for Private Forests will host the 2017 Forest Landowners Conference on March 24-25 at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona.
This 3rd Biennial Forest Landowners Conference is the region’s foremost gathering of woodland owners, forest practitioners, and others interested in woodlands and the wildlife that use them.
Nearly 740,000 owners care for Pennsylvania’s 11.5 million acres of privately-owned woods.

Whether you own a backyard patch of woods or a large-acreage woodland, this conference will provide you with the tools you need to improve the health and well-being of your forest.
During two days of educational presentations, you'll learn and share ideas with other landowners and experienced woodland professionals to help you steward your woodland.
