    Loving the Land 2016 a Success!

    In keeping with the weather that has accompanied this event through the years, Saturday, May 14 was a chilly and soggy day in Northwestern Pennsylvania.  Happily, almost 100 people braved the elements to attend the Loving the Land Through Working Forests conference, held at a 140-acre woodlot near Corry, PA.  This year's crowd consisted of private woodland owners, forest conservationists, educators, professional land managers and foresters, and even Boy Scout Troop 254 of Saegertown.
