Water quality is theme for KWOA/F 2019 Annual Meeting March 26-27

The  committee responsible for the annual meeting would like to thank our members for their input into the topics you are interested in. After consideration, we have taken a themed approach. Most, if not all of you, are aware of the American Tree Farm System. The four tenets of the ATFS are Wood, Wildlife, Water, and Recreation. So, for at least the next four years we will be using each of these as the theme for the annual meeting. Starting with Water in 2019. Clean water plays a major role in our lives. We will be looking at the importance of streams and their health, and how proper forest management contributes to the clean water we all need. It is our hope you will find this informative and fun.

Morning topics include management of Pennyrile State Forest, state of its watersheds, biology and field chemistry, habitat and riparian issues, and streams and timber harvesting.

Tuesday evening’s events include a social hour, silent auction, banquet and speakers.

 

 

Wednesday morning’s agenda addresses the state Watershed Watch program, the American Chestnut Foundation, cooperators’ reports and the annual business meeting.

Meeting registration includes Tuesday lunch and evening banquet. Lodging consists of lakeside rooms and cottages.
