Tri-State Forest Stewardship Conference


Tri-State Forest Stewardship Conference

The Tri-State Forest Stewardship Conference has a 25+ year tradition of providing science-based information and resources to forest landowners and stewards in the Illinois/Iowa/Wisconsin tri-state area. It is one of the largest conferences for forest landowners in the Midwest, and is sponsored by Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin Extension Services. Although designed specifically for woodland owners, attendance by forestry professionals, consultants, volunteers, Master Naturalists, and students is highly encouraged.

The one-day conference is held in spring of each year, usually in early March. Following the 2024 event (which occurred on 3/2/24), conference host states will rotate in a three-year cycle. Thus, the event will be hosted in eastern Iowa in 2025, southwestern Wisconsin in 2026, northwestern Illinois in 2027, and the cycle then repeated.  

Check this page regularly for updates regarding the coming year's TSFSC. Initial details are usually posted in early fall for the following year's event.
