Sunday: We will kick-off Sunday evening with a dessert reception, field tour previews, and a special presentation on Aldo Leopold’s Land Ethic from the Aldo Leopold Foundation.

Monday field tour: We will tour field sites at the Bohlin End-O-Way property in southwestern Wisconsin where we will discuss invasive buckthorn management, native hardwoods management, EQIP, riparian buffers, and many other topics.

Monday evening: The popular Landowner Show and Tell gives you a chance to tell attendees about successes, lessons learned, new ideas, or whatever you’d like to share. Please call the office or note on your registration to request a time slot.

Tuesday indoor program: Some of the topics on Tuesday will be seen at the Monday field tour, but now we will discuss in more detail. ID and management of invasive plants, restoring forests in a floodplain, and a forest health update are some of the many topics. Join forestry experts for a panel discussion where you can ask any questions. At the end of the day, we have a special showing of an Emmy award-winning documentary about Aldo Leopold, Green Fire.

Wednesday AM: Sessions will continue on chainsaw safety, the status of the wood industry, and what landowners are doing for bats, among others.

The field tours description includes information on optional pre-conference tours as well as optional spouse tours.
