What is Forest Stewardship?
Forest stewardship is the broad mission of finding the intersection between achieving goals and promoting values of forest landowners while helping maintain healthy forests. Often this ranges from fish and wildlife habitat, scenic beauty, recreation, wildfire protection, timber and non-timber forest resources, and while host of other objectives. WSU Extension works to provide scientifically backed information and connect resource professionals to landowners seeking to become forest stewards. Our program includes outdoor field day events, workshops, professional seminars, and our flagship Couched Stewardship Planning course.
