Regional Informational Meetings- 2021
Join us at one or all of our Regional Meetings "Marland's Forests- Great for the Environment and the Economy" to hear from forest industry experts. Learn more about the state of Maryland forestry, market opportunities, and how conservation and utilization are equally important elements of sustainable forestry. The theme was inspired by our latest project:
The publication is the result of a collaboration made in partnership by MFA, MD/DE Society of American Foresters, Harry R. Hughes Center for Agro-Ecology, Maryland Forest Service, University of Maryland Extension, MD/DE Master Logger Program, and the Rural Maryland Council. The booklet serves to give readers a brief look at Maryland's forests and answers frequently asked questions.
We hope that readers gain a better idea of how we can sustain our forests for multiple uses for years to come. We hope you will join us in person to hear our featured speaker Phil Gottwals, ACDS. Phil and his team have spent over a year working on an Economic Adjustment Strategy, a plan to serve as a roadmap for recovery for the forest products industry. Learn about the strategies, initiatives, and actions identified in the plan. To view his presentation click here. See below tentative for agendas and regionally-specific speakers.
