The 21st Annual Northwestern PA Forest Landowner Conference will be held on January 28 at the Edinboro-McKean V.F.W. Post 740, 10613 Route 98, Edinboro.
The Erie County Conservation District, Northwest PA Woodland Association and the DCNR Cornplanter State Forest District are hosting this special event.
The long-term sustainability of our natural resources is in the hands of many local communities, state agencies, non-profit conservation organizations and thousands of private landowners.
Private forest landowners own over 12.5 million acres or 75 percent of the Commonwealth’s forestland.
The reasons for owning are as variable as the landowners themselves. Recent studies indicate that many landowners own forestland for multiple benefits including: water quality, recreation, wildlife, aesthetic beauty and timber.
The demands on our forests are ever increasing; subsequently the knowledge a forest landowner should have to properly manage their forests is also increasing. Future forest conditions directly depend on the decisions being made today.
The goal of this conference is to help you explore and understand some of the management options that are available to you and to provide an opportunity to network and meet other forest landowners.
