A Vision for the New England Landscape

New England Forestry Foundation is hosting an all-day, regional conference featuring the Harvard Forest report co-authored by scientists from across the region, Wildlands and Woodlands—A Vision for the New England Landscape.

Friday, June 4, 2010, 9:30am to 4pm

Grappone Conference Center
Marriott Courtyard
Concord, New Hampshire



"The Wildlands and Woodlands vision ensures, at reasonable cost, that New England will retain the vibrant, sustainable landscapes that shape its identity and support local economies, communities, and their quality of life. Financially prudent and forward-looking, the vision allows for continued economic growth and development — as much as a doubling of the current amount of developed land. In thoughtfully conserving its landscape, New England can provide national leadership in the integration of economic prosperity, natural resource conservation, and energy and resource efficiency...

At this conference, we will begin the dialogue among you — landowners, professionals, conservationists, and others — about how this vision could be achieved. We hope that you will join us for this important day. "
