The Woodland Compass
Welcome to the Woodland Compass, the OSU Extension electronic newsletter for landowners in Benton, Linn and Polk Counties. The Compass will be posted here and sent out by email every two months with news and information to help landowners take care of and enjoy their woodland properties. Electronic announcements of upcoming events will be distributed through the Needle to help keep you informed about local workshops, tours or other happenings.
With the Compass and Needle, we hope to be able to bring you more-focused, detailed and timely information on the art and science of woodland management, with more photos and links than in print formats.
To receive the Compass and Needle delivered to your inbox, contact Jody with your name, email, and physical mailing address & phone (to help keep email lists current).
