This page lists events for the IFA and other forestry organizations in Illinois.  The sponsoring organization(s) are indicated.  It is not always possible to provide complete descriptions for other organizations' events, but we try to at least provide you with a contact for more information.

About Registration 

Even though most of these events are free and open to the public, it will help the organizers to know how many will be attending.  So, please register for these events whenever possible.  This will also help you, because if weather looks threatening, the organizers can easily send you a message about whether the event will be held or delayed or cancelled.  Some partner organizations are handling registration for certain events.  For those, registration is disabled.

If you have an upcoming event that you feel relates to forestry in, or near, Illinois, please send the details including contact information to the administrator

    • SIU's Touch of Nature Environmental Center (near Makanda, IL)

    Save the dates!!  Registration opens September 1st for the 11th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Forestry Association and the Fall Meeting of the IL Chapter of the Society of American Foresters -- September 29-October 1st at SIU's Touch of Nature Environmental Center in beautiful Southern Illinois.

    Click HERE to download a 2-page flier and program agenda at-a-glance.

    Together with our sponsors, we're combining forces to offer an outstanding program focused on the latest developments around oak forest restoration and management.  You may be aware that the decline of the oak component in oak-hickory forest types is a major concern throughout Illinois and the Central Hardwood region - not just for foresters, but for anyone who values the products, wildlife and native plant communities that these ecosystems support.  At this conference you'll learn what it takes to grow and sustain healthy and productive oak-hickory forests in Illinois.

    Not so fast.  Do your eyes start to glaze over when you hear a lot of technical jargon and acronyms related to forestry?  Get one step closer to understanding and speaking the same language as your forester by attending our new introductory course just for landowners on Thursday afternoon, September 29th.  The ABCs of Forestry is an optional pre-conference session that will cover "the basics of forestry for landowners" in 4 hours.  That won't be easy - come and watch us try!  Topics highlighted will include everything from how a tree grows to how forests are managed.  Learn the meaning behind commonly used terms.  Hear from a variety of presenters, and ask the questions that might seem silly, but will help everyone understand what forestry is all about.  Been at this a while? Take it as a refresher course so you can explain it better to a neighbor or friend.  Participation in this optional course will be a great lead-in to the main event.  From 1 to 5 p.m. on Thursday - with free time to explore the area that evening.  Did someone say Wine Trail?

    On Friday, September 30th, we'll begin with an optional morning "Walk in the Woods" walking tour at Touch of Nature.  Activities will include basic plant and tree ID, measuring trees, assessing forest conditions and advance regeneration, reading the signs of past land use, and wildlife considerations.  Consider this the field component for the ABCs session.  You'll also learn about efforts underway to begin managing the forests associated with the Touch of Nature Center.  Participants will enjoy a box lunch upon return to the main building.

    Our Friday afternoon program will feature a panel of leading experts covering the practices of forest stand improvement, prescribed burning, and invasive species control.  Each will cover their respective topic, and then the discussion will turn to what they have learned in terms of an optimum sequence for the best results.  Does it work best to burn first and then treat invasive plants the next year or season - or vice versa?  Land managers are working together now more than ever to figure out how to help oak trees thrive, from seedling to saw timber and beyond.

    Speaking of working together, the Forest Service is playing a key supporting role in this year's annual meeting.  Tracy Boutelle Fidler, newly minted Public Affairs Officer on the Shawnee National Forest will facilitate the panel session:  Let the Sun Shine In!  In her former roles in the private and non-profit sectors, Tracy has been actively involved in bringing disparate interests together to study and manage a large demonstration area at nearby Trail of Tears State Forest.  (Conference participants will get to see the latest results of this cooperative work when we tour the Trail of Tears State Forest Demonstration Area on Saturday.)

    Following the panel discussion, we'll hear from Brendan Cain, the new Forest Supervisor in charge of the Shawnee NF.  He'll talk about the importance of working together across public and private property boundaries to carry out forest management activities.  Whether you're a private landowner or agency steward, it pays to cooperate on practices like controlled burning and invasive species control - if you want lasting results.

    Our keynote presentation will feature Bob Gillespie, IDNR Natural Resources Coordinator at Prairie Ridge State Natural Area, calling upon his combined experiences in forestry, wildlife and heritage to offer a unique perspective on our program theme. 

    If that sounds like a lot of information in a short period of time, don't worry.  We have breaks factored into the schedule so you can rest your brain, visit with each other, take a look at the exhibits, and browse the Silent Auction!  (Consider donating an item in advance to help support the IFA!)

    After the keynote, we'll enjoy a social hour before being treated to the famous tradition of the Buffalo Tro dinner.  Later in the evening we'll gather around a bonfire and talk "Fireside Forestry" - a new way to spread the word about forestry to your neighbors and friends.  Our theme will be Managing Forests for Wildlife.  We've invited the National Wild Turkey Federation to partner with us on the Fireside Forestry project.

    We'll kick off Saturday morning with concurrent business meetings of the IFA and IL-SAF on site at Touch of Nature.  All members are encouraged to attend - it's a great way to stay informed and do your part as a member to keep these two important organizations on track and moving forward.

    As previously mentioned, Saturday's field tour at Trail of Tears State Forest near Jonesboro will highlight strategies underway to determine the best sequence of management practices to enable native oak trees - and their associated ecosystems - to flourish.  See the results of different management practices and sequences first hand, and learn what they are planning to do next.  We'll enjoy lunch in the field at the appropriate time, and you'll be free to depart or continue exploring the area's many attractions no later than 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.

    On-line registration will open on September 1st.  A downloadable program flier with a more detailed agenda will soon be posted with this notice. Sponsor and exhibitor packets will also be available soon.  A block of rooms has been reserved at the Touch of Nature facility.  The area includes a host of other options, from B&Bs to chain hotels within a reasonable drive.  More details and registration options to follow, so consider bookmarking this page and check back later.  Questions?  Call Stephanie Brown at 618/949-3699 or email ilforestry@gmail.com.

    • Madison, Wisconsin

    Plan to attend the SAF Convention in Madison, Wisconsin -- November 2-6, 2016.

    Forests form the fabric of the landscapes of Wisconsin and the Great Lakes area, influencing generations of foresters and figuring prominently in the cultures, traditions, and economies of the region. Madison is central to a robust Midwestern forestry community that offers a rich history, a legacy of pioneering forestry environmentalism, and an active contemporary forestry industry. It is a vibrant, safe, walkable capital city that is home to the University of Wisconsin and the world-renowned USFS Forest Products Lab.

    The 2016 SAF National Convention will explore the rich history of forestry, land stewardship, and the connections that unite all who create, manage, use, and conserve forests and associated resources to meet desired goals, needs, and values.
