California SAF Winter Meeting

February 22

California Societof American Foresters

2020 Winter Meeting 

The State of California Is Burning II

Will “Pace and Scale” Save Us?  

During our 2019 Winter Meeting we explored the theme: The State of California is Burning: Is This Our Future?  At our meeting, many good ideas were shared, with the need to adjust the ‘pace and scale’ of projects on the landscape being a reoccurring theme.

One year later, how are we doing?  What have we learned?  Are we meeting our objectives?  What new challenges are in front of us?  With climate change, are large, damaging fires the new normal for the wine country?  What about those Public Safety Power Shutoffs?  Can they be expected each Fall until the Winter rains arrive?

Come join us at the 2020 California SAF Winter Meeting in Folsom, California to explore these and other questions.  Save the dates February 21-22, 2020, as more information on our program and registration will be out soon.

Friday will start off with the California SAF Executive Committee (EC) meeting.  The EC meeting be held at Lake Natoma Inn, 702 Gold Lake Drive, Folsom, CA 95360.  The meeting is open to all interested individuals, however there is limited seating for non­-committee attendees.

Saturday’s conference will be at Lake Natoma Inn, 702 Gold Lake Drive, Folsom, CA.

When booking your reservation be sure to call (916) 351-1500 and ask for “Society of American Foresters” to get special rate.
