Registration is now open for vendors and exhibitors wishing to be part of Trees For Tomorrow’s 4th Annual Forest Fest set for Saturday, Aug. 2.
The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Trees For Tomorrow campus in Eagle River, and features a variety of forest-related displays, demonstrations, programs, crafts and entertainment.
“Forest Fest is a free, fun, family event that celebrates all that the forest has to offer,” said Barbara Janesh, Forest Fest coordinator. “That includes: wood products, wilderness, wildlife, water quality and recreation, and more.”
This year’s event will feature logging equipment demonstrations, a new Amazing Forest Race, the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Woodland Sports lumberjack team, entertainment by both Bill Jamerson and the Pinery Boys, and the popular Lumberjack Breakfast.
Photographer Mark Hirsch, who documented a year-in-the life of a lone bur oak in his book “That Tree,” also will be part of the festivities. Hirsch will speak during a reservation-only, pre-event dinner Friday evening and will make a limited appearance at Forest Fest on Saturday.
