A half-day tour of the Herrling Tree Farm near Cross Plains, converted in 2000 from crops and livestock to a 225-acre forest and prairie preserve, will put the finishing touch on the 2012 annual meeting of the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association.
Set for Aug. 23-26 at the Madison Marriott West, the meeting will be packed with tours, talks, and educational activities.
Speakers will discuss everything from "Wildlife vs. Working Lands" to property taxes. Additional tours include the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, the Rule State Demonstration Forest, the Lake Belle View Restoration Project, and many more.
The annual meeting is open to all WWOA members (membership is $45 per year).
