MFA’s Annual Meeting will be a virtual event this year, and will take place on Saturday, October 24 from 10 am – noon. The event is free, but registration is required, and space is limited!
The meeting will feature keynote speaker Dave Celino, the Chief Fire Warden in Massachusetts. Dave will talk about the busy 2020 drought-fueled fire season, and discuss some effects of fire on the landscape and the use of prescribed fire in habitat creation and fire risk reduction.
Marianne Piche and Patrick Conlin, habitat biologists for MassWildlife, will discuss the brand-new Collaborative for Private Forestland Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), a grant program that is a joint effort of MassWildlife and MFA.
We’ll also present the Douglas B. Cook Wood Producer of the Year Award and the Howard F. Mason Forester of the Year Award to very deserving recipients, and hold a short business meeting.
The meeting has been approved for continuing education credits:
- 2.0 Massachusetts Timber Harvester credits
- 1.25 Massachusetts Forester credits in Category I
- 1.0 Connecticut Forester CEUs
- SAF credits are pending
Registration is open now for the meeting, and again, there are limited slots available. To register, visit mfa-annual-meeting.eventbrite.com. We hope to see you (virtually) on the 24th!
