Vermont State Lands Timber Purchasers Meeting

Vermont Technical College "Red Schoolhouse" in Randolph Center
For anyone who is interested in bidding on state lands timber sales
Tentative Agenda

A final agenda will be distributed closer to the date of the meeting. You are not required to attend the meeting to bid on state lands timber sales but there will be a preview of tentative sales planned for the next year, a run through of some contract and policy changes and open discussion about our timber program and other topics. Representatives will be on hand from the FPR and Fish and Wildlife central office and our five districts. For those who would like to stay for the remainder of the day, we will be putting on an AMP workshop with both classroom and in the woods training and it will qualify for LEAP credits.
