Save The Date: PA Riparian Forest Buffer Summit Feb. 20-21

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Western PA Conservancy will be hosting a Riparian Forest Buffer Summit on February 20-21 at the Best Western Premier Conference Center, 800 East Park Drive in Harrisburg.
Pennsylvania has a goal of planting 95,000 acres of riparian buffers statewide by 2025 to improve water quality.
The objective of the Summit is to provide conservation professionals and other Riparian Forest Buffer practitioners, decision makers and others with the latest and greatest information on Forest Buffer science, implementation strategies, outreach, funding options, as well as to provide networking opportunities for those working and volunteering in the forest buffer field.
DCNR and the Conservancy held the first Forest Buffer Summit earlier this year in State College.
Questions about the Summit should be directed to Teddi Stark, DCNR's Riparian Forest Buffer Coordinator, by calling 717-787-0656 or send email to:
