As Alton Perry, program manager for the organization sponsoring the conference, states in this blog post, “For some of our project participants, their land has been in the family for 100 years. It’s extremely rewarding to help position them to make good decisions that increase family wealth and sustain natural resources at the same time.” To register, go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/north-carolina-virginia-forest-landowner-conference-tickets-56943599840?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.
