2016 Workshop: Practical Silviculture for Non-foresters

Wildlife managers, ecologists, and others are often consulted for input on public lands harvest plans. This workshop is designed with these folks in mind, although anybody is welcome to attend. We’ll review the theory and practice of silviculture, with a focus on common applications on Minnesota forests. The workshop will include lecture, field site visits, and hands-on prescription development exercises. And we plan to have some fun in the process.

Date: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 from 8:45am to 3:45pm
Location: Deep Portage Conservation Reserve, Hackensack MN (map and directions)
**note:  Deep Portage Conservation Reserve in Hackensack, MN is the correct location.  A recent email newsletter incorrectly reported the location as the Long Lake Conservation Reserve**
Instructors:  Eli Sagor of the University of Minnesota and Erik Lindquist of the Cass County Land Department
CE credits:  5.0 Cat 1 SAF
