Events & Activities

Each year KFA sponsors and assists with the organization of the Kansas Agroforestry Field Day in May, the Walnut Council Field Day in June and the Fall Forestry Field Day in October. These events provide “hands-on” educational opportunities in natural resource management. The field days connect landowners with other landowners who are planting trees and caring for their woodlands and windbreaks as well as professional foresters, wildlife biologists, scientists, loggers and other natural resource professionals. Each year KFA and the Kansas Forest Service present the Kansas Agroforestry Award and the Forest Stewardship Tree Farmer of the Year to landowners who do an exceptional job caring for their woodlands and windbreaks. Recipients of these awards receive a $200 gift certificate, a walnut plaque, and an award sign to post on their property. KFA also keeps members aware of additional educational opportunities and financial assistance to help cover the cost of implementing forestry practices.
