Following dinner, our guests will speak on silvicultural opportunities in northcentral PA (especially in the wake of Emerald Ash Borer). The meeting will wrap up at 8:30. Application for one CFE credit is in the works and should be available.
Dinner choices include lasagna and chicken cordon bleu. Cost of the meal will be $15. Payment can be made at the meeting or sent to: David Andrus, 59 Clearview Drive, Coudersport, PA 16915.

You are encouraged to show up early to see the museum visitor center that opened in May of 2015. It really is a wonderful display of Pennsylvania forest history. They have agreed to waive the use fee for the facility because SAF fits into their mission statement. They have also agreed to waive the entrance fee ($8) for anyone showing up early but will accept any donation you care to make to the museum.
