Timber Sale Design for Wildlife Planning (Cook)

group standing in a recent clearcut site with instructor

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. This field day will focus on small tweaks foresters can make to their timber sale plans to improve the wildlife habitat outcomes of those treatments. We'll hear from foresters and wildlife managers. Because the event is offered jointly between SFEC and the Minnesota Logger Education Program, we'll also discuss operational considerations in implementing wildlife-focused forest management. 

Date: Wednesday, Sept. 7 from approximately 9am to 3pm
Location: Cook, MN
Speakers: Representatives of DNR Forestry, DNR Wildlife, and others
Cost: $75 for SFEC members, $140 for nonmembers, $40 students
