Hear from the Experts: WDNR Forestry Lecture Series sponsored by LEAF.

Join LEAF staff and DNR experts over your lunch-hour as we explore different topics in the world of forestry. Each online session will provide background content about the day’s scheduled forestry topic, mention career pathways for students, and allow question and answer time for participants to interact with the presenter.

Caring for our Public Forests

The public places myriad demands on our public (county, state and national) forests. Let’s explore how foresters care for our public forests to provide for social, economic and ecological needs. Learn how foresters balance multiple use management on these lands with timber harvests to meet other goals such as wildlife habitat and recreational purposes. We will focus on the management of the Flambeau River State Forest on its 90th anniversary this year!
