 This event has been cancelled.

The Tri-State Forest Stewardship Conference is a 1-day educational program annually presented by extension educators at the University of Illinois and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. This conference is designed specifically for forest landowners in the Midwest. Speakers present on a range of topics from traditional woodland management techniques, timber taxes, game and non-game wildlife management, to soils and soil erosion in woodlands. Non-timber forest products such as maple syrup production, raising ginseng, and mushrooms are also presented.

The Conference is scheduled for Saturday, March 14th, at (change of venue) Highland Community College.  Check-in begins at 8:00 am, with opening remarks at 9:00 am.  There will be no keynote speaker, just five 55-minute sessions with 4 electives for each session.  There seems to be a theme of establishing and managing oaks running through these sessions.
