Early Registration Deadline Feb. 1: PA Riparian Forest Buffer Summit Feb. 20-21

The early registration deadline for the DCNR and Western PA Conservancy Riparian Forest Buffer Summit on February 20-21 is closing fast.
Register before February 1 to be assured of hotel rooms at a reduced rate.  Registrations will still be accepted after February 1, but the block of rooms will no longer be held.
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 last year.
This year’s Summit will be held at the Best Western Premier Conference Center, 800 East Park Drive in Harrisburg.
