  • Master Woodland Manager Volunteer Program

    The Master Woodland Manager (MWM) training is offered by Oregon State University Forestry Extension as a master's level course for landowners who are interested in an intensive forest management training and sharing the knowledge gained through this training with people in their local communities.  Graduates of the program have been serving Oregon for 20 years.

    MWM volunteer training will be offered in Douglas County in the Fall of 2019! While it seems so far away, you can start preparing for it today. Be sure to enroll attend events such as Tree School and classes like the Basic Forestry Shortcourse to make sure you’re ready for MWM classes.

    Forest Carbon Markets for Family Forest Owners

    Carbon markets can provide a new annual income stream to forest owners. This workshop is being offered by the Pinchot Institute for Conservation to help forest owners in the Pacific Northwest learn about forest carbon sequestration and carbon market opportunities. Participants will learn about:

    · the range of carbon sequestration rates across different forest types and practices,

    · carbon market opportunities and challenges, and

    · methods for forest carbon inventory and accounting.

    Staff for the Pinchot Institute will explain and demonstrate a new program called Unlocking Carbon Markets for Family Forest Owners in the PNW. Through this program, landowners can receive financial and technical assistance designed to help overcome transaction costs and related barriers that have prevented family forest owners from participating in carbon markets. This assistance is also incorporated into stewardship planning and adoption of conservation practices in the forest.

    The mature forest stands and management practices at Camp Adams (Clackamas Woodland Farmer of the Year 2016) have high potential for carbon sequestration. Using sample stands at Camp Adams, the instructors will demonstrate a forest inventory method for estimating marketable carbon for selected forest stands.
