After a successful debut as a virtual summit in 2021, Northwest Innovative Forestry Summit is returning in 2022 — this time 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 advance and celebrate innovation in all aspects of forestry and forest-related work in our region. Join a diverse mix of Northwesterners for a three-day exploration of the past, present and future role of innovation in our forests and forestry. Each day will include a series of themed presentations and discussions exploring all dimensions of innovation in modern forestry.
We invite natural resource professionals, students and educators, and members of NGOs, private or public organizations to join us next March for three days of forestry education and innovation in the woods. Overnight accommodations are available at Pack Forest.
Event starts: Friday, September 30, 2022 4:00 p.m.
Event ends: Sunday, October 2, 2022 12:00 p.m.
Location: University of Washington’s Pack Forest, 9010 453rd St E, Eatonville, WA 98328
