Mentored Management Planning Shortcourse

Forestry Events - 11 hours 35 min ago
Thursday, October 30, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

A written Forest Management Plan serves many purposes.  It helps you organize and plan for activites on your land.  It is a valuable communication tool for your family.  A plan is required for forest certification programs and it forms the foundation for sustainable forest management.  By writing part, or all of your own forest management plan, you gain a better understanding of your land and can potentially save on professional costs.

Writing a plan takes time and an understanding of your property, but the Mentored Management Planning shortcourse will guide you through the process.  In addition to the four class sessions, you will be paired with an experienced "mentor" who will provide one-on-one assistance.

To attend you must pre-register no later than October 24.
