Trenton Woodlot Conference

Friday, November 23, 8am Р4pm in Batawa

Farms and Forests: Living on the Edge. Much of the forest cover in our area is on farms. This forest cover provides important economic and environmental benefits, both locally and to the larger community.

Speakers: Dr. Rene Van Acker, Dean of the Ontario Agricultural College at U. of Guelph, will address the state of farming in Ontario and the relationship of the farming sector to our communities. Susan Willis Chan, instructor in Sustainable Agriculture, will explain how rural landowners can improve the ecological health of their property and gain in overall yield. Highlight is a field trip to the Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area.
