The successful release of the Wildlands and Woodlands vision for New England culminated in a standing-room only crowd at the project's regional conference in Concord, NH, on June 4. The host of the event, the New England Forestry Foundation, registered 275 attendees—landowners, scientists, forest industry professionals, conservation organizations, land trusts, philanthropists, media representatives, and policymakers. The attendees came together in the morning for keynote lectures about the Wildlands and Woodlands vision by David Foster and James Levitt of the Harvard Forest, followed by V. Alaric Sample, President of the Pinchot Institute in Washington DC. Conference attendees expressed their thoughts during afternoon workshops on land protection partnerships, innovative conservation finance, protecting farmland, and establishing woodland councils.
