Want to learn about your woods without leaving home? The Forestry & Natural Resources Extension (FNR) is offering the Basic Woodland Management Course starting this February as a remote program.
This six-session course is ideal for people who are new to taking care of woodland or forested property. The class provides a broad introduction to woodland types, tending practices, and terminology to help you take care of your property and get
things done. Topics covered:
- Getting Started, assessing your property and site.
- What’s Going on in Your Woods? Understanding forest ecology, forest health and wildlife needs.
- Taking Care of Your Woods: tree planting, care for an established forest, weed control, fire preparedness.
- Getting it Done: safety, timber sale logistics, laws, and regulations.
What is the “remote” format? The class will be presented in a series of six live zoom class meetings, remotely, from our homes to yours. This distinguishes it from an “online”class format where participants can log on and take classes at their own convenience and pace. We chose the remote class format to capture as much of the feeling and benefits of a local, live, face-to-face class as possible.
FNR Extension has been offering this class in one form or another for over 30 years. We present practical information useful to new land managers. But we frequently hear that the largest benefit to participants is the chance to meet and learn with other landowners from their area. We want to keep that opportunity available in these live online sessions.
The course will be held on Thursdays, February 11-March 18, 6:00-8:00 PM.
