Intersection of I-90 & Hwy 95

Family forests (also known as non-industrial private forests or “NIPF” lands) are vital to the economy and quality of life in the Inland Northwest. These lands are critical for wildlife habitat, timber production, scenic quality, and many other values.

Unique skills are required of individuals who help family forest owners manage their property. This program is designed to:
• Strengthen the skills of consulting foresters, state-employed service foresters, and other natural resource professionals who work with family forest owners.
• Serve as a forum to provide updates on emerging technology and knowledge applicable to family forestry.

The program can accommodate up to 100 people, so please register by January 12, 2018, to assure your place and help us plan. An $85 pre-registration fee ($95 after January 12 or at the door) includes lunch and refreshments. There is an additional $5 fee for online registration.

A small block of rooms at the Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn has been reserved until January 12th, 2018 at a special rate of $87 plus taxes (single occupancy) for participants in this program. To make a room reservation, call (800) 251-7829. To get the special rate, say you are with the “UI/WSU Family Foresters Workshop”. After January 12th, reservations will still be taken at the lower rate, based on availability.
