RE:  STREAM CROSSING PERMIT TRAINING

On 4 October, the DEQ, in cooperation with the DNR and the Otsego and Crawford-Roscommon Conservation Districts, will be providing a stream crossing permit application training session in Grayling, MI.  The goal of this training will be to discuss the Joint Permit Application and other components of the DEQ permitting process as it relates to road stream crossings for logging operations.  Forest product industry personnel interested in learning about stream crossing permit applications are encouraged to attend.  The training has been approved for the following continuing education credits: 5.5 hrs of SAF CFEs and 4 hrs of SFE CEs.
 
The training session will include both classroom and field components:
-   Indoor discussion (approximately two hours)
o   Forests for Fish Program
o   Joint Permit Application form
   Application sections relevant to stream crossings
   Application figures
o   Permit categories
o   Application checklist
o   DEQ permit application review process
-   Outdoor site visits
o   Data collection
o   Application figures
 
The classroom portion will be held in the conference room at the Hartwick Pines Visitor Center at Hartwick Pines State Park in Grayling.  Lunch will be provided.  The training will start at 9 am and conclude in the field by 4 pm.
 
Please reply by email to kleitchm@michigan.gov if you are interested in attending.  Attendance for this session will be capped at 25 people and spots will be assigned on “first come, first served” basis.  Preference will be given to those that have not previously attended this training.  Once you are registered you will receive an e-mail confirmation with additional information.

Tree Farm Conference and Michigan Forest Association Meeting 2017
 
This is an invitation to all Tree Farmers to attend our conference for forest landowners in Tawas on Sep 22-23, 2017.  This is a combined meeting of the Michigan Tree Farm System and the Michigan Forest Association, another excellent organization for forest landowners here in Michigan.  The meeting, held on the shores of Lake Huron, will focus on the connections between forests and water with the theme of “Great Forests make Great Lakes.” 
 
Friday Sep 22 will be educational sessions at the Tawas Bay Beach Resort and Saturday Sep 23 will be a bus tour of three nearby certified Tree Farms.  You can register by returning the attached form and a check payable to the Michigan Forest Association or you can also pay online with a credit card at www.MichiganForests.org.  Registration fees increase after Sept 1 so please register soon. 
 
This meeting will be a great place to meet other landowners who also love their forests, and the Michigan Tree Farm System is excited to partner with the Michigan Forest Association to host this meeting.  I hope to meet many of you at the meeting in Tawas next month.
