Over 10 million acres of Virginia's woods are privately owned.  The Woods & Wildlife Conferences provide information, tools, and personal contacts to help private woodland owners keep their woods, and the wildlife that live in them, healthy and productive.  

A variety of topics are offered to appeal to owners of both small and large tracts, and both new and experienced owners.  These day-long conferences are held in February.

To date, over 2,500 woodland owners have attended a Woods & Wildlife Conference.
