2013 Partners in Community Forestry National Conference Information
The Partners in Community Forestry National Conference continues to grow and evolve as the only national, annual gathering for the broader urban forest community and its many partners. This year’s event will continue to offer a platform for sharing best practices in urban forest partnerships, planning and management, in addition to offering models of sustainability and innovation across all groups who serve community trees.
The diverse attendee group at this event lends itself to informational sessions that incorporate unique topics, new models of partnership, interactive sharing sessions and new research findings or case studies that benefit the broader urban forestry community.
The Lightning Round is a series of 7 minute presentations packaged together around a theme. This format was developed to provide background information on a variety of topics within a given session, usually 4-5 presenters in a given time slot. Presenters are then able to discuss their topics in greater detail with interested parties during the course of the conference.
