Woodland owner conference
UTICA/OGLESBY — The Illinois Forestry Association is holding its annual conference on Friday and Saturday, Sept.20-21, at Starved Rock State Park and Illinois Valley Community College in LaSalle County. Both IFA members and the public are invited to attend either the entire event or any portion they wish. This year's theme is "Here Comes the Sun" - giving your trees room to grow.
Friday afternoon field trips from 1 to 4 p.m. are free; professional foresters will discuss ways to provide your better trees the resources they need to improve.
Friday night, from 6 until 9 p.m., the IFA will host a dinner. The keynote speaker is Dr. William Luppold, research economist for the USDA Forest Service, presenting aspects of the international timber market that apply to Illinois woodland owners — where our timber goes, what it is used for, and export and import markets as well. The charge for the dinner and speaker is $25.
