Welcome Lauren Grand, Lane County's new Forester!
The OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Program provides objective, research-based information and educational opportunities for woodland owners, industrial forest owners, logging operators, natural resource professionals, and public audiences.
Please feel free to contact me for more information about upcoming opportunities to learn more about forest ecology, management, and forest stewardship.

Classes and Events
Ties to the Land
Ties to the Land focuses on succession planning, the human side of estate planning. This workshop will focus on strategies to maintain family ties to the land from one generation to the next; building awareness of the key challenges facing family businesses; and motivating families to address the challenges. It is a facilitated and interactive workshop with DVD-based components that provides effective tools families can use to decide the future of their land.
Our next workshop is on May 14, 2016 from 10 AM - 3 PM at River Road Park, Eugene, OR 97402. The cost is $50 per family (up to 5 members) and includes lunch and a workbook to take home and personalize your very own plan!
Check out our many web-based publications, videos and other resources, available through Extension's Statewide Forestry and Natural Resources Program.
