Creative Silviculture

August 5 @ 9:30 am - August 6 @ 11:30 am

Registration closed

Kemp Natural Resources Station (9161 Kemp Road, Woodruff, WI 54568)

We often refer to silviculture as the “art and science of growing healthy forests.” For this meeting the Forest Stewards Guild welcomes you to northern Wisconsin to discuss some of the creative ways people are stitching together the art with science to improve the stewardship of our forests.

Registration covers venue costs and all meals; field tour transportation will be via carpooling.

  • Event: $55.00 (Monday box lunch and BBQ dinner, plus Tuesday morning pastries included)
  • Student: $25.00
  • Lodging Monday at Kemp: Add $50 – includes linens

Lodging is limited at Kemp Station, so we strongly encourage you to register early.

Please be aware that Kemp offers dormitory style lodging and private rooms are not available. If you would like private lodging, we encourage you to look into the wide variety of hotels in and around Minocqua – note however that this is peak tourism season in this area and availability may be limited. There are also a series of State Forest campgrounds in the vicinity; Clear Lake and Indian Mounds are the closest to Kemp Station (http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/StateForests/nhal/camping.html).

We added a ‘dinner guest’ option if you have someone traveling with you that will be enjoying Northwoods camping, fishing, sightseeing, etc during the meeting but would like to join for dinner.
