Symposium on Lake States Lowland and Wet Forests

A northern Minnesota ash-dominated wet forest

Wet, lowland, and riparian forests in the Lake States are important ecologically and commercially. But numerous challenges constrain management options, including dealing with serious and imminent forest health threats including ash mortality from the emerald ash borer and tamarack mortality from the eastern larch beetle. In this three-day online symposium, we'll hear from researchers and practitioners as we dig into these issues, the status of the associated natural resources, and what we can do to ensure continued ecological integrity and productivity in these systems. 

What to expect: Day 1, Oct. 26 will focus on lowland conifer systems. Day 2, Oct. 27 will focus on ash-dominated wet forests. Day 3, Oct. 28, will focus on riparian forest systems. The session will include a series of short presentations with ample opportunity for open discussion in small and large groups. This will be as interactive and engaging a program as possible. Recordings of all presentations will be available to registrants. 

(While open to all, this event will satisfy part of the NASP Lake States Regional Module.)
