In less than a month, Three Rivers Land Trust will host its first Habitat Summit.

The Habitat Summit was designed as a platform for wildlife biologists, foresters and natural resource professionals to share sound management advice with landowners and land managers.
Subject matter experts from across the country will gather on October 7 at the Charles Mack Citizen Center in Mooresville for an event designed to educate landowners and professionals.

The Habitat Summit is for individuals, private landowners, land managers, conservation groups, consultants, academic staff, forestry professionals and outreach staff who share an interest in promoting wildlife and improving forest land.

The Habitat Summit provides an opportunity for farmers, hunters, landowners and those interested in conservation in general to learn about the management options available to them.

The Habitat Summit will host concurrent sessions with speakers rotating throughout the day. Property owners will be able to choose the sessions that interest them the most. Presentations will include topics such as: Wild Turkey Management, Deer Habitat Management, Prescribed Fire, Forest Land Improvement, Pollinator Habitat, Invasive Plant Control, Duck Detentions , feral hog management and family land conservation.

“The professionals who come to present on October 7 are experts in their respective fields and will have a plethora of information to share with attendees. It will be a great opportunity
for those who attend to learn from the best of the best on how to achieve their land management goals,” said Travis Morehead, Executive Director of TRLT.

Possible sessions for attendees include steps landowners can take to improve their land for a wide range of wildlife, from bats and butterflies to ducks and white-tailed deer. Continuing education credits are also available for professionals, including NC Pesticide Renewal, Continuing Education in Forestry, and Certified Wildlife Biologist credits.
