Forest Stewards Guild 2017 Lake States Meeting

Friday, July 21, 2017 - 10:00 to Saturday, July 22, 2017 - 12:30

Register today for the Forest Stewards Guild's 2017 Lake States meeting, July 21-22. This Guild Gathering will be held at UW-Madison's Kemp Natural Resources Station near Woodruff, WI and focus on 100 Years of Lake States Forest Stewardship; Now What?

In the Lake States, we often look at how to sustainably manage young forests to have the characteristics of older forests. For this 1.5-day meeting, we plan to focus on situations where we have relatively old forests and now are at a decision point as to how to move forward while balancing the ecological, economic, and social attributes of the forest.

Inspiring Youth & Conserving Forests

Through our Forest Stewards Youth Corps, we put young people to work protecting, restoring, and enhancing America’s great outdoors. We provide career training in natural resources for 16-25 year olds from areas that have few employment opportunities. Through training from Guild staff and our partners and hard work on the ground, our crewmembers develop important outdoor skills in forest management, fire ecology, watershed health, and wildlife ecology.  Help us expand our program and inspire even more youth!

Putting the Forest First

From Humboldt County, California, to Aroostook County, Maine, we are the stewards for America’s finest forests.

We invite you to join us.

From our beginnings over thirty years ago, the Forest Stewards Guild has recognized that maintaining healthy, productive forests is the best investment we can make in promoting the wellbeing of people and forest communities. Our work includes hands-on forest stewardship, education and training, research, policy advocacy, and promoting professional practice – all based on high ethical standards and our unique mission of “putting the forest first.”
