Northwest Innovative Forestry Summit
Northwest Innovative Forestry Summit (NIFS)
March 30 - April 1, 2021 @ 4:00 - 6:00 pm each day via Zoom
For more information and to register, please visit the event website here.
Focus: This Summit is a venue for regional learning, exchange, and ongoing cooperation to implement ecological forest management strategies. The Summit’s programs will focus on sustainable, forest-related innovation – past, present, and future.
Purpose: 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.
Logistics: This first NIFS will take place virtually March 30-April 1, 2021. Each day will include a series of themed presentations and discussions from 4:00 – 6:00 pm for partners to share their approaches to modern ecological forestry. The event will start by featuring stories of innovation from around the region, highlighting the successes, challenges, and opportunities that land managers and other forestry and natural resources professionals are engaged in across Oregon and Washington. All members of the forestry and affiliated communities are invited to contribute to the Summit by sharing their experience and questions.
Organizers: This event is organized by the Forest Stewards Guild, Northwest Natural Resource Group, Oregon State University, and University of Washington.
