Forest Stewardship Webinars

Forest Stewardship Webinars

Give us 50 minutes, we’ll teach you something

We offer periodic live webinars on various forest stewardship topics. The webinars are free, but pre-registration is required. Each webinar is offered twice: one from 12:05-12:55 pm, and again from 7:05-7:55.

Most of our webinars are now approved for teacher clock hours and SAF CFEs!  Please see the specific webinar for details.

Due to increased security, you must have your own Zoom account to participate. You can easily create a free Zoom account if you do not already have one. Important: you must have your Zoom account set up and be registered for the webinar at least two hours before the webinar start time.

If you are interested in a webinar but will be unable to attend, please register anyway so that you can receive a link to the recording.

Princes in disguise: Frogs and other amphibians in northwest woodlands

Though they probably won’t turn into royalty if you kiss them, amphibians are still some of the coolest creatures in northwest woodlands. This webinar will go over the basics of identifying local frogs and salamanders as adults and by their eggs. We’ll also discuss what habitat characteristics are important for sustaining amphibians and seeing them on your property. You’ll even leave this webinar with tips on designing a walking trail that attracts amphibians and makes them easy for you to spot.

Instructor: Lauren Grand, Extension Forester, Oregon State University
