Enjoy a weekend at Hulbert Outdoor Center on beautiful Lake Morey in Fairlee, Vermont, while engaging with well-known writers, editors and educators. In addition to workshops and talks, there will be panel discussions, nature walks and fun extras such as an open mic night, syrup tasting and s’mores around the fire.

Sponsored by The Trust for Public Land, this conference will explore how writers, artists and educators express the rich forest heritage of the Northeast: both the natural history of our region and the interactions of people and place.

This year’s conference includes a number of prominent speakers from New England and New York, including bestselling natural history author Bernd Heinrich, illustrator David Macaulay, conservationist and author Peter Forbes, bear authority Ben Kilham, children’s book illustrator Robin Brickman and place-based education leader David Sobel.

Overnight (shared cabin) lodging and day rates are available, and all meals are provided. Teacher professional development certificates will be distributed. Enrollment is limited.
