The Missouri Community Forestry Council is hosting its 20th annual conference Tuesday, March 5 through Thursday, March 7. The theme of this year's educational event, to be held in Joplin, is Preparedness Diminishes Disaster. There are a plethora of interesting workshops from which to choose, including "Basic Disaster Preparedness and Response for Your Community Forest" and "Risky Business: How to Manage Tree Risk in Your Community". There will be sessions dealing specifically with the Greensburg and Joplin tornado events: "Greensburg, Kansas – Lessons Learned from Their Experience": and "Blown Away: Joplin’s Tornado Story – Timeline, Weather, Path, Impacts". Participants will also have the opportunity to plant trees in the Joplin tornado zone on Wednesday afternoon. Early bird registration is available until February 1.
