Invites You to Attend the
FLC Annual Meeting - April 28-29, 2017
Black Oak Hotel & Casino, Tuolumne, CA
The FLC Annual Meeting, held for the first time in conjunction with the California Tree Farm System, has a theme of "The Impact of Fire and Climate Change on Water Quality and Availability: What You need to Know for Your Forest Management." Join us for a program to include a full day of expert speakers on the impact of California's continuing catastrophic fire (and resulting insect-caused damage) and climate change, and thus on water supply and quality for nonindustrial timberland owners.
As climate change and its related fires continue to ravage forestlands, the active management that tree farms and nonindustrial forestlands provide will be even more essential to our societal strength and the health of earth itself than they are today, and we urge those FLC members, CTFS members and others, who have been considering how to "up their active management" game, to attend.
Friday's speakers' day will explore the impact of fires and climate change on water quality and availability. Some of our speakers are Hugh Safford on climate change, drought patterns and the impact on fire return intervals, and Jodi Axelson of UCCE, Berkeley Forest Center on governmental response to fire-kill. Presentations will also focus on efforts of various water districts to cope with long-term soil loss and water quality threats following major fires such as the King Fire in Placer County and the Rim Fire on Hetch-Hetchy Reservoir. Attendees will learn how to develop the tools to manage the anticipated changes to their forests.
The evening will feature time to visit with each other during a cocktail hour; a dinner presentation by Randy Hanvelt, PhD [Supervisor, District 1, Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors], and a lively fundraising auction. On Saturday, the field day includes visits to nonindustrial tree farms in the region surrounding Sonora, which have experienced fire and its impacts on water courses and water quality. Exports will tell us about the complexities of post-fire forest and watercourse restoration.
