About the Chapter:

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. WOWnet is a nationwide program that is dynamic, fun, informative, and strives to bring topical, accessible, and current forestry information to woman woodland owners and forest practitioners. We support women in forest leadership, women who manage their own woodlands, and all who facilitate the stewardship of forests. Through educational resources and personal stories we strive to instill a sense of confidence and empowerment in women’s abilities to meet the challenges of forest ownership.

Upcoming Events:

BBQ and weeds discussion

Tuesday July 26, 2016, 5-9 PM

In addition to good food and good company, this is a chance to learn from fellow WOWnet member Idonna Pieper Nelson WOWnet member Idonna Pieper Nelson about practical ways to control the pesky weeds in your forest. Idonna has graciously offered to host the group at her beautiful forested property on Camano Island overlooking Puget Sound. Idonna has put several years of effort into eradicating weeds from her forest, with great success. From weed wrenches to vinegar and Scotch broom to dandelions, she has a lot of experience that’s worth sharing with other women. Bring your own meat (BYOM) for the bbq. Side dishes and beverages will be provided. Directions will be sent out to those who RSVP. Please RSVP to idonna [at]
