What’s New

Welcome to the Grey Bruce Woodlot Conference Website

After having to cancel the 2020 woodlot conference due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the organizing committee decided to make the 2021 conference a virtual reality this year. While not as informative and hands on as the original conference format, the virtual conference will attempt to provide informative sessions for participating landowners.

The conference will be presented over two evenings, utilizing the “ZOOM” platform where landowners who have previously registered for the event can sign in and take in the presentations in the comfort of their home. There is no cost for these sessions but you must register in advance to be able to receive the sign in code.

The following is the current details for the 2021 GBWC:
