Natural Disturbance Forest Habitat Summit

Tuesday November 29th, 9am - 4:15 pm and Wednesday November 30th, 8:30am - 2:30 pm

As foresters we try to emulate natural disturbance through silvicultural practices, but often nature has other ideas, confounding well-implemented prescriptions. Join us for this two-day exploration of connections between natural disturbance, wildlife habitat, and forest management.

Timber Sale Design for Wildlife Planning (McGregor)

Tuesday, November 1st from 9am to 3:30pm

Timber sales are our primary opportunity to manage forest structure and composition at any scale larger than a few acres. Public and private land managers design timber sales to achieve multiple objectives including wildlife habitat improvement, timber harvest, improved forest resilience, and addressing forest health threats. Offered jointly between SFEC and the Minnesota Logger Education Program, this workshop features a mix of indoor instruction and site visits.
