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.
Edible Wild Berries Workshop
Saturday April 26, 2014 in Everett
This class has been cancelled – we plan to reschedule for early 2015.
As a landowner you can take steps to increase the survivability of your family, home, and property before a wildfire begins. This free workshop will prepare you to assess the fire risk on your property, utilize firewise construction and landscaping methods, and obtain the support you need to start protecting your home and property.
