The training involves seven full-day to 1.5-day modules spaced out about once a month. In addition, there will be assignments between classes. Most classes will have a large field component. Sessions will be held in different locations around Clackamas and Washington Counties.
MWM is an advanced training program. Ideally, trainees will have experience managing their own land and/or will have attended previous OSU Extension programs, such as the Basic Forestry Shortcourse, Management Planning, or Tree School.
If you are ready to become a more active and informed manager of your woodland, are able to be an active and engaged participant in the training, and are willing to share your knowledge with others, I encourage you to consider the Master Woodland Manager training. The application is posted on the MWM website: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/mwm/. Space is limited. Please apply by April 15th.
This course involves 60 hours of instruction, with monthly sessions, as well as a volunteer requirement. There is a cost recovery fee of $75, which will be collected at the first session.
