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

The Habitat Summit was developed as a platform for wildlife biologists, foresters, and natural resource professionals to share sound management advice to landowners and land managers.
Subject-matter experts will come together from all over the country on Oct. 7 at the Charles Mack Citizen Center in Mooresville for an event crafted for the education of landowners and professionals alike.

The Habitat Summit is catered to individuals, private landowners, land managers, conservation groups, consultants, university staff, forestry professionals and outreach personnel who share an interest in promoting wildlife species and improving forestland.

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

The Habitat Summit will host concurrent sessions with speakers rotating throughout the day. Landowners will be able to choose sessions to attend that they are most interested in. Presentations will include topics like: wild turkey management, deer habitat management, prescribed fire, improving forest land, pollinator habitat, invasive plant control, duck impoundments, feral hog management and conserving family-owned land.

“The professionals coming to present on Oct. 7 are experts in their respective fields, and will have a plethora of information to share with attendees. This will be an excellent opportunity
for those attending to learn from the absolute best of the best on how to achieve their land management goals,” said TRLT Executive Director Travis Morehead.

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