Forest Conservation and Stewardship Summit coming in September

Date: September 27, 2016 - September 28, 2016
Location: Boyne Mountain Resort, Boyne Falls, MI

Join Heart of the Lakes, the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, the U.S. Forest Service and other natural resource professionals for an exploration of best practices for Forest Conservation and Stewardship in an era of rapid change. This meeting is designed to gather natural resource professionals from Michigan’s tribes, land conservancies and other organizations around a common theme: Forest conservation in an era of rapid change. Emerging threats like climate change, deer browse, and forest pests can cross all ownerships and have the potential to alter our shared natural environment in profound ways over the next century.

This meeting is designed to share the best available information on potential impacts on Michigan’s forests and best practices on how to prepare for these changes. A full-day workshop on Sept. 28 will be led by the U.S. Forest Service. It will provide an opportunity for hands-on training, for people who want to do a deeper dive into climate change and to consider climate adaptation actions for their own real-world project.
