WSU Extension, in cooperation with WA DNR and King County, presents the 2024 Puget Sound Forest Owners’ Field Day to help you learn about forest issues, foster healthy and resilient forest conditions, pursue fun new projects, and achieve your goals for your property. The Field day will feature different outdoor workshops with a number to choose from that cover a wide variety of topics.

Learn about current forest health issues, drought and climate impacts, fire risk reduction, wildlife, making your own maple syrup, new forestry research, and much more in an out-in-the-woods setting with local experts.
