There is a lot happening with the Pennsylvania Forestry Association in the coming months!

The Pennsylvania Forestry Association (PFA) has been busy with continued planning for the Annual Symposium to be held on Saturday, October 9 at the Toftrees Golf Resort in State College. The Nominating Committee has been busy working up a list of candidates for Board and officer positions. Election results will be announced at the Symposium. Tree Farm is busy updating the Tree Farm Manual which guides the activities of the committee that oversees the Tree Farm program in Pennsylvania. They are also looking at strategic planning to guide them through the next five years. PFA itself will be doing the same soon. The Forest Heritage Committee has re-opened the Discovery Center in Caledonia with a person who will be staffing the venue this summer. Hours of operation will be available on the PFA website soon. The third video in the series being produced to highlight the various displays in the Discovery Center has been posted to YouTube, this one on the Civilian Conservation Corps. The video production team from the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art has been a great asset as these videos are made and posted. Be sure to look for and enjoy them. Other dates to keep in mind are the Log a Load Clay Shoot being held Friday, October 1 and the Annual Conservation Dinner scheduled for Saturday, March 5, 2022, hopefully live and in person. Save the dates!
