Managing Your Timberlands for Wildlife

The Pierce Chapter of the Washington Farm Forestry Association (WFFA) invites you to join us on April 28-30, for our 2024 Annual Meeting (AM24). We begin with our Executive Board (EB) meeting on Sunday and an evening social with Ken Bevis (DNR Wildlife Biologist with his guitar) as our entertainment. Monday will be our meeting day, all happening at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma. The AM24 program will offer a full day of wildlife experts. The morning will have a variety of speakers, from how to manage your timberlands for pollinators, and what to do with those nuisance animals, both two- and four-legged. The afternoon will continue with great speakers touching on how to entice wildlife, big and small. Tuesday will be our Field Tour at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). We are looking forward to catching up with all our forestry friends and learning about wildlife (good and bad) and how to best manage our lands with them.
