Woods and Wildlife Conference: Bring out the best in your property

forestryOwners of woodlands large and small will learn how to maximize their property’s potential at the 10th annual Woods and Wildlife Conference.  This educational event will be held February 23 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, at Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center in Culpeper.

“This conference addresses the latest issues and trends in forest and wildlife management,” said event founder Adam Downing of Virginia Cooperative Extension. “Participants can tailor their own program by attending sessions that target large property management, small woodlot projects, or topics of general interest to any landowner.”

Co-sponsored by Virginia Cooperative Extension and the Virginia Department of Forestry, the conference features expert speakers on diverse topics relating to wildlife habitat improvement, threats to forest land, forest management techniques, and making the most of a landowner’s resources. The conference cost is $45 per person or $80 per couple, which includes lunch and materials.
