Western Washington Fall Online Field Day – 2022

2022 Online Western Washington Forest Owners’ Fall Field Day

Online — Saturday October 22, 2022 — FREE!

Take a fall Saturday for forestry education

Is it time to sharpen the saw of your forestry knowledge?

Do you want to learn new things about enjoying and caring for your property? Do you want to learn things like:

  • How to make your trees more resilient in a changing climate
  • Heat, drought, Ips beetles, sooty bark disease, and other current forest health threats
  • Agroforestry and nontimber product opportunities
  • How to improve wildlife habitat
  • Gerry Oak restoration techniques
  • And much more?

If so, this Online Fall Field Day is for you!

Online Fall Field Day is designed to let you attend multiple workshops all in the same day and will help you address challenges on your property, restore healthy forest conditions, and achieve your goals. The event will feature unique webinars specifically for people with forested property in Western Washington.

Whether you are a novice to family forestry, or your family has owned land for many generations, there is something new for everyone to learn. This is a family-friendly event. Youth are encouraged to participate, so tune in with your next generation of forest stewards.

What to Expect

Live sessions

The Online Fall Field Day will consist of five 50-minute sessions, during each of which you can pick from a variety of topics. You will be able to ask questions and interact with instructors and panelists via the chat box.

A final schedule, with Zoom meeting room numbers for each session, will be sent out a few days in advance of the event so you can plan which sessions you want to attend live.

Recordings

Can’t attend live on October 22nd? Register anyway! Registered participants will receive links to the recordings of the sessions a week or two after the event has occurred. This will also allow you to see all the sessions you are interested in, even if they’re scheduled for the same time slot–watch one live and catch the recordings of the others later.
