Appalachian Regional Mine Land Reforestation Conference Aug. 17-18 In West Virginia

The 2022
Mine Land Reforestation Conference will be held on August 17-18 at the Wingate Hotel in Elkins, West Virginia

Hosted by the U.S. Office Of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement's Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative, the Conference brings together citizens, coal industry, government and nonprofit groups dedicated to restoring forests on coal mined lands in the Eastern United States.

The first day of the Conference will feature presentations by experts in the science, policy, and implementation of the Forestry Reclamation Approach (FRA) on active mining operations, abandoned mine lands, and legacy sites (previously reclaimed mined lands). 

The second day will feature a field trip to the Monongahela National Forest to view several years of high elevation, red spruce restoration on reclaimed surface mines, including watershed enhancements. 

Opportunities for networking and collaboration will occur throughout the conference.
