WSU North Puget Sound Extension Forestry Classes and Events
We have a variety of forestry education offerings throughout the year, including workshops, field tours, field days, and short courses.
Forest Stewardship Coached Planning
Our flagship class will teach you how to assess your trees, avoid insect and disease problems, attract wildlife, and take practical steps to keep your forest on track to provide enjoyment and even income for years to come. In this class you will develop your own Forest Stewardship Plan, which brings state recognition as a Stewardship Forest and eligibility for cost-share assistance, and may also qualify you for significant property tax reductions.
- Fall 2014 – Preston (King County) – Tuesdays starting September 16th.
Women Owning Woodlands Kickoff Picnic
August 12, 2014 in Everett
Woman Owning Woodlands Network (WOWnet) is a network of women who learn, educate, and work together to build female literacy and involvement in forestry, land conservation, and natural resources. Our kick-off potluck picnic is the start of a North Puget Sound chapter of this network. We will discuss what your needs and interests are as a female woodland owner in order to develop educational programing and experiences that directly relate to the care, needs, and management of your woodland. The event is free, but please RSVP and bring a dish to share. Additional Information and RSVP.
Summer Twilight Forest Tour

Long summer evenings are perfect for enjoying “twilight tours” of local forests.

The tour concludes with a potluck dessert, so please bring something sweet to share. The tour is free, but RSVP is required. Additional Information and RSVP.
