Annual Winter Meeting


Forest to Faucet -  Streams, Wells, and Wetlands and the impacts on Small Forest Landowners

Managing- the quality of both surface water and groundwater is vital for sustaining North East Washington aquatic ecosystems. It is important to protect the considerable diversity of waterways types with its unique biodiversity they support, and the social and economic services they provide to our communities.

This is will be the theme at the North-East Chapter’s 2018 Annual Winter Meeting. There will be a diversity of presenters speaking on streams, wells and wetlands and how current and future regulations can impact small forest landowners.  

Speakers will be sharing information on how modern forest practices can assist landowners in the protection of streams, rivers, and riparian zones.  Agencies will provide information on "best management" practices and cost-sharing programs that could help balance timber harvest with sustainable water flow and quality. Government representatives will update the attendees on the passage of the Senate Bill 6091, regarding the Hirst Decision, and what does it mean to the local communities and forest landowners.
