After a successful debut as a virtual summit in 2021, and a virtual NIFS series in spring of 2022, Northwest Innovative Forestry Summit is returning in person — at the University of Washington’s Pack Forest!

The Pacific Northwest region benefits from a long, deep, and often underappreciated history of experimentation and innovation in its forest sector. Current challenges call us to better understand both current and past examples of forestry innovation, and to chart a course for improving sustainable forest management through partnerships and problem solving.

The Summit is a venue for regional learning, exchange, and ongoing cooperation to implement ecological forest management strategies. This year, the Summit will take place over the course of three days, and programs will focus on connecting the future of our forests & communities. Each day will include a series of themed presentations and discussions from and for forestry researchers, practitioners, and educators to share their approaches to modern ecological forestry.

We invite natural resource professionals, students and educators, and members of NGOs, private or public organizations to join us for three days of forestry education and innovation in the woods. Overnight accommodations are available at Pack Forest.

Covid Precautions

This event is following UW COVID rules, and masks are not required, but encouraged during all indoor sessions. Commonly used surfaces will be disinfected regularly and  hand sanitizer will be available at each building. 

If you are sick with any illness, you must stay home, even if you are fully vaccinated, per University of Washington policies.
