Fox Valley Winter Landowners Conference

Home >> Content >> Fox Valley Winter Landowners Conference

JOIN US for the 2018 Fox Valley Winter Landowner Conference at La Sure’s Banquet Hall (3125 S. Washburn St, Oshkosh, WI). We’ve got a full lineup of excellent speakers, ready to share with you. We’ll kick things off with a forest health update from our DNR plant pest and disease specialist and then move into a discussion on bear management in Wisconsin. After a break we’ll change pace and get an update on ticks and tick diseases in Wisconsin…an important potential health
issue woodland owners should be aware of. Next up is a great discussion on the next generation of woodland owners and engaging our youth to foster forest stewardship. From this great lead in, we’ll again feature estate
planning advice from a local attorney.

We’ve got a great lineup of speakers and topics that we’re sure will give you new information as we head into 2018. Join us and bring a friend. We’ll once again kick off the day with a HOT BREAKFAST BUFFET so come early and come hungry! We’re looking forward to seeing you in February!
