NYFOA Symposium: The Future of New York Forests at Risk- Working Toward a Comprehensive Solution
Saturday, April 25, 2015
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: ESF Gateway Center
Event Description: Forests cover 63% of New York State’s land area and provide critical environmental, economic and quality-of-life benefits to society. Most of our current forests are entering the final third of their natural life cycles but, in many parts of the state, are not regenerating the desirable tree species and native understory vegetation that will serve the needs of citizens, wildlife or the forest products industry in the future. Participants and speakers, through discussion and interaction, will assess the capacity of current knowledge, techniques and policies to assure the regeneration of native New York forests.
This symposium is presented by the New York Forest Owners Association and co-sponsored by:
Audubon New York, Catskill Forest Association, Cornell University College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, New York Department of Environmental Conservation, New York Farm Bureau, SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry, and The Nature Conservancy.
Who Should Attend?
Any business associated with the forest products industry, environmental organizations, land trusts, maple syrup producers, consulting foresters, farmers whose agricultural interests are impacted by deer, those who value healthy & diverse woodlands as bird and wildlife habitat, organizations interested in forest recreation, including hunting, businesses dependent on tourism, state, county and municipal park authorities, state legislators and the media.
