For the first time in at least two decades, possibly ever, UW-Stevens Point will host the annual Midwestern Foresters' Conclave at Treehaven this spring, defending the title the team won last year at Purdue University. Additionally, the  STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series will be on site to host a collegiate and professional event at the conclusion of the conclave. This event will be broadcast nationally on the ESPN family of networks later in the year and will bring student and professional competitors in from across the Midwest. Viewing of these events are free to the public. If your company or agency would like to sponsor part of the Conclave event, please contact Paul Doruska, faculty advisor to the timbersports team, at pdoruska@uwsp.edu for information about sponsorship opportunities.
