Classes and Events
Programs in SW WA are in the seedling stages and will soon be growing into regular classes and events. We offer a variety of workshops, field days, and classroom sessions covering all things related to small forest management. Stay tuned for programs in your area by checking the website, following us on Facebook, or signing up for our emails. You can also contact us directly for questions about current classes and to make suggestions for future programs.
Forest Stewardship Coached Planning is the flagship course for small landowners and is put on in partnership by WSU Forestry Extension and the WDNR. Topics covered include silviculture, ecology, harvesting, thinning, wildilfe, special forest products mapping, soils, and much more. Through this series of classes, landowners are “coached” through the process of writing a forest management plan for their property based on their own management objectives. Your management plan is a key to accessing resources for small forest landowners in this area, such as reduced property taxes, cost-share assistance programs, and becoming a certified stewardship forest.
