This is a major two-day indoor and field event designed to foster information exchange about how current harvesting levels and patterns are affecting wildlife habitat. Presentations will explore the state of Minnesota’s forests from a variety of spatial scales, the quality and nature of habitat for forest-dependent wildlife species, the influence of harvest-related disturbance on habitat, and a process to help prioritize policy, management, and research needs to optimize the habitat outcomes of active forest management.

Dates: Tuesday and Wednesday October 10 and 11, 2017. Tuesday we will be inside and Wednesday we will be in the field.
Location:  Timberlake Lodge and field sites near Grand Rapids, MN
