Woods and Wildlife Conferences To Be Held in Roanoke

Owners of woodlands large and small can learn how to maximize their property’s potential at one of two Woods and Wildlife Conferences this winter.

Both educational events will be held February 23 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.  Locations will be Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center in Culpeper, and Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke.

“This conference addresses the latest issues and trends in forest and wildlife management,” said event founder Adam Downing of Virginia Cooperative Extension. “After fourteen successful years in central Virginia, we decided to add a Roanoke location this year.”

Collaborators from public, private and industrial entities plan the conference, with sessions that are applicable to both large and small property owners.  Specific topics differ by location, but examples include forest health, pollinators, forest products, creating and maintaining various habitats, timber sale and harvest considerations, human-wildlife conflicts and more.

The cost of the conference is $45 per person or $80 per couple, which includes lunch and materials.  Registration and program details for both locations can be found at http://forestupdate.frec.vt.edu/ , under Landowner Programs.  The deadline to register is February 12.  For more information, contact Jennifer Gagnon at 540.231.6391 or [email protected].

 

 

Persons with disabilities who desire any assistive devices, services or other accommodations to participate in this activity may also contact Jennifer during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to discuss accommodations, no later than February 1. *TDD number is (800) 828-1120.
