Welcome to the Grey Bruce Woodlot Conference Website
With the continuing presence of the Covid- 19 pandemic amongst our population, the possability of a in person Woodlot Conference in 2022, seems to be diminishing. In the fall at our latest organizing committee meeting we thought the possability of a live conference was good. However since that time the 4th wave of the pandemic is happening and therefore rules out the live conference.
As with the 2022 conference, we will be hosting a virtual conference with the tentative dates of Tuesday March 22nd and Thursday March 24th, 2022.
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 finalized details for the 2022 GBWC:
Dates: Tuesday March 23rd and Wednesday March 24th
Times: Presentations will start at 7:00 pm and run till 9:00 pm
Format: There will be two presenters for the first evening, and two for the second evening.
List of topics to be presented in 2022:
