Conservation symposium on forest management

Forest Management: Seeing the Forest and the TreesThe Ninth Annual Conservation Symposium at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History

A forest is composed of much more than just its trees. It also includes wildflowers, fungi, birds, amphibians, insects and mammals -- all in delicate balance with each other. The ninth-annual Conservation Symposium focuses on forest ecosystems and the management practices that enhance biological diversity within them. Join us for a series of presentations that address the biological consequences of manipulating forest resources, such as removing or leaving dead snags and fallen logs, cutting or allowing wild grapevine, and suppressing or encouraging understory shrubs and trees.

The program contains a mix of workshops and field trips on Thursday, September 6, a full day of presentations on Friday, September 7 and field trips and the Great Lake Erie Boat Float on Saturday, September 8.
