2016 Land Steward Training Program
September 7th – November 16
The Land Stewards Program helps local small-acreage landowners learn about ways to create a healthy environment on their property through weekly site visits, presentations from natural resource professionals, and the creation of a personalized management plan. The course serves land owners who want to learn how to balance sustainability with their rural lifestyles.
The 11-week training course provides training for Southern Oregon residents on topics such as wildfire risk reduction, woodland and forest management, encouraging (and controlling) wildlife, stream ecology, pasture management, soils and organic waste, small acreage systems and infrastructure, economics and enterprise on your land, stewardship planning and much more!
