The North Central Forest Pest Workshop is coming up at the Menominee Casino Resort in Keshena, Wisconsin, USA on September 21-24th. The "earlybird" registration rate of $185 is good until August 21st. If you wait until after that, the price goes up to $210. There is a student or retiree rate, and single day rates. See the attached registration form for details. Payment for registration can be made via check or Paypal.
The theme for this year is "Reconnecting Silviculture and Forest Health". We have many interesting speakers and topics lined up, plus an all-day field trip into the beautiful 235,000 acre forest of the Menominee Indian Nation to observe oak wilt management, large diameter hemlock and white pine, emerald ash borer and beech bark disease silviculture modifications, among other things. A draft agenda is attached.
We are currently accepting entrants into the student paper competition. We have a limited number of time slots, so if you are a student who wants to present a paper, get your request in early! See the attached registration form for instructions on signing up a student paper.
We will have a poster session as well, with no limit on the number of people who can register with a poster. We aren't planning to have a competition associated with the posters-just sharing of information. If you're bringing a poster, indicate that on your registration form.
A block of rooms is being held at the Menominee Casino Resort at the great rate of $70 per night, plus we have additional rooms held at hotels in Shawano. Info about that is on the registration form, and on the website.
