news release

Due to the COVID-19 Safer at Home Orders, the 16th Annual Sustainable Forestry Conference is postponed from April 23rd to Tuesday, September 22, 2020.  Because many attendees need the SFI or SAF credits earned from this conference the planning committee decided not to just cancel until 2021.  The conference starts at 7:50 am at the Keyes Peak Ski Lodge, 4960 Hwy 101, four miles south of Florence with doors opening at 7:20 am for check-in.  You must preregister for this event.  Walk-ins will not be allowed. 

If you are already registered and can attend the new September 22nd date, you will stay registered. If you are already registered and can’t make the new date please contact Sabrina Leffler (715-528-4480 ext. 1 or  by June 15th, 2020 for a refund.  This will allow space for others to register.
If you have not yet registered please use the original brochure that was mailed to you or register and pay online by September 1st at:  Register early, this conference fills up fast.  You can also print out the registration form online or use the form from the original brochure and mail it with $35 payment fee to Extension Florence County, Attn: Sabrina Leffler, Florence Natural Resource Center, 5628 Forestry Drive, Florence, WI 54121.

This year’s conference focuses on “Woods to Market”.  Wood supply, demand and markets are always changing (and are changing even more right now) and so are the regulations related to doing business.

Organizers encourage individuals from Wisconsin and Michigan regional wood products and logging businesses, local government, forestry and land management, school boards and administrators, utilities, economic development, state government and other related associations and resource agencies to attend.  A diverse audience has led to excellent discussions and networking at past conferences.

This conference is sponsored by Wisconsin Lumberjack Resource Conservation & Development Council Inc, Verso Corporation, Florence Utilities/WPPI, Florence County Forestry & Parks, Florence Hardwoods LLC, Sagola Hardwoods Inc, Minerick Logging, Oconto County Economic Development Corporation, Grow North, InVentureNorth, Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association, Langlade County Economic Development Corporation, and Oneida County Economic Development Association.
