at the Maritime Institute for Technology in Linthicum, MD.
Registrations will be accepted through September 28, 2009.
Background: Leading up to The Summit, this spring 155 leaders and stakeholders were invited to answer a survey that was used to spark the discussion in the 5 listening sessions that were then held across the State to discuss how can we best focus limited resources on the most important issues facing forestry and what recommendations should be made to refine existing State policy and to position Maryland for new non-traditional markets for environmental services.
Throughout the day, participants will have ample time to visit with exhibitors all of whom will have displays that pertain to the issues discussed at the Summit.
Master Logger Continuing Education Credits Available
