MFA’s Foresters Council holds an annual meeting, normally at the Bluebonnet Diner in Northampton. Last year’s event had to be cancelled, and we’re still not able to hold the event in person this year (but we’re hopefully getting closer to a return to normality!). This year’s meeting will take place virtually on Thursday, May 13th, from 5-7 pm. While designed to be of interest to foresters, the meeting is open to all MFA members and the public at large.
The schedule for the presentation:
- DCR Updates on state lands management and service forestry
- A presentation from MassWildlife on the joint MFA/MassWildlife RCPP grant program to create young forest habitat on privately-owned forestland – with updated eligibility and other application information
- A presentation from the New England Forestry Foundation on their new Exemplary Forestry guidelines for southern New England forests – learn how foresters can use these guidelines to increase productivity and carbon sequestration
- Legislative updates on the many forest-related bills filed this legislative session
This program has been approved for 2.0 Massachusetts CFEs in Category I, 2.0 SAF CFEs in Category I, 2 Massachusetts Timber Harvester CE credits and 1.0 Connecticut Forest Practitioner CFE credits.
The meeting is free, but registration is required and space is limited. Registration is now open, so please visit mfa-foresters-council-2021.eventbrite.com to register today! We hope to see you on May 13th.
