What to expect
By the registration area will be several vendor exhibits where you can browse and network with forestry professionals in the morning and during the lunch hour. The workshop stations are located in the woods, about a 5-10 minute walk from the registration and exhibit area. Access the stations is via well-maintained forest roads with moderate inclines. There will be six workshop sessions (three before lunch and three after). For each session period, you will get to pick from the workshops offered for that session time. A schedule showing what workshops are offered at what times (and the station locations) will be provided when you arrive. The sessions will run approximately one hour, followed by ten minutes to walk to your next station.
Portable restrooms, coffee, refreshments, and drinking water will be available on-site.
