The 2021 SAF National Convention will be held November 3–7 at the newly renovated Sacramento Convention Center, with discounted overnight room blocks secured nearby at the Hyatt and Sheraton. Information about hotel rates, making reservations, and the local area will be announced in early 2021. The Convention will explore the critical role that forests play in providing life-giving ecosystem services and serving as green infrastructure to our communities. Join us and equip yourself to navigate policy and market dynamics, forest health and disturbances, technological shifts, and cultural changes in turbulent times that call for an inclusive approach to forestry as a practice.
This is the first in a series of Wildfire Prevention Summits. This premiere event will examine the four primary causes (Arson, Accidental, Roadside & Utility Infrastructure) of wildfire ignitions with a focus on Roadside and Utility Infrastructure ignitions in the Western United States. The intent of the Summit is to provide a venue for an exchange of dialogue regarding current issues, best practices and emerging solutions on wildfire prevention. Our speakers and panels will provide a national perspective while discussing regional, statewide and local initiatives. Fire safety professionals from around the world who are involved in wildfire protection and prevention are encouraged to attend this summit.
On April 6-8, 2021 the University of Washington’s Climate Impacts Group hosted the 11th Northwest Climate Conference (NWCC) as a fully virtual conference. This conference has provided a networking and learning community for practitioners, scientists, tribal members, and community organizers interested in climate change impacts and adaptation in the Northwest for over a decade. The NWCC is committed to supporting equitable climate adaptation outcomes and building equity and diversity in climate science, policy, and adaptation practice. We encourage our conference attendees and presenters to advance the conversation around climate justice both as a stand alone topic and across the many other topics and themes profiled in the conference. If you are working to build a climate-resilient Northwest, this conference is for you.

Idaho’s collaborative groups are committed to promoting forest restoration on federal lands. National elections and new Administrations may modify policy impacting public lands management. What is the potential impact on collaborative groups engaged in forest restoration? This regional event brings together leaders from the timber industry, local government, conservation organizations, community groups, and land management agencies from across Idaho. IFRP has structured this virtual conference to include informative presentations, panel discussions on current issues, and break-out sessions.
This virtual conference will review the Trees to Tap Science Review using a mix of science presentations given by the project scientists and management presentations given by forestry and water professionals, regulators and conservationists. Science presentations will give a high-level summary of the Trees to Tap findings in each topic covered. Management presentations will give an overview followed by practical discussion of how to account for the report’s scientific findings in practice.
