The 30th annual Trenton Woodlot Conference will take place on Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Batawa Community Centre in Batawa, Ont.

This year’s theme is Returning to our Roots with a focus on traditional knowledge and practical forestry. There will be stimulating speakers in the morning and afternoon, and an optional field trip to a diverse woodlot area in the afternoon.
