  1. I am a member of a group of citizens who are very interested in forest stewardship issues in both public and private forests. We live in NW Minnesota near Detroit Lakes and Park Rapids so we do not have a broadcast site near us for the upcoming “State of Forests” webinar on Oct 21st. Is it too late to set up a site near us for this important event?

    1. Thanks for your interest in the webinars Willis. Sorry to report that it is a bit late to set up a site in your area. We will plan to make the webinar available online after it concludes, so hopefully your group will be able to access it. -Matt
