Forest landowners and managers have different education and technology transfer needs and preferences. To be effective it is important to use a multi-faceted science delivery/technology transfer program to reach them. Multi-faceted science delivery programs can provide similar content over a wide range of mechanisms including printed publications, face-to-face workshops and training sessions, satellite-based and pod casting-based distributed learning courses, and a wide range of Internet-based products. Several opportunities exist to share theories, products, activities, successes and failures across the science delivery, Extension and education communities. These proceedings from the Southern Region Conference on Technology Transfer and Extension in Natural Resources contain 4 keynote papers, 18 papers on various technical and procedural aspects of science delivery, and 9 papers describing various technology transfer efforts. As a collection, these papers describe the state of activities and thinking in Southern United States natural resource science delivery and technology transfer.
