URBANA, Ill. — University of Illinois Extension and Iowa State University Extension are hosting the 2018 Tri-State Forest Stewardship Conference on Saturday, March 10, at the Sinsinawa Mound Center in Sinsinawa, Wisconsin.

“We are proud to announce that this is the 24th year for the forestry conference, which annually draws over 500 woodland landowners and tree enthusiasts from Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and several other states,” says Jay Hayek, U of I Extension forester.

“We definitely like to brag about this being one of the largest woodland-owner conferences east of the Mississippi River. We have 16 guest speakers this year with a slate of 20 forestry, conservation, and wildlife-related presentations,” Hayek says.
