Woodland owners in Central Washington can learn how to protect and pass their forests on to the next generation, in a Forest Stewardship Coached Planning course led by Washington State University Extension Foresters.
The course, starting October 31, in Leavenworth, is held 6 to 9 p.m. most Wednesdays through Jan. 9, with one Saturday field day. Cost is $75, and includes a reference library, tools and materials.
WSU Forestry Coached Planning Courses build skills to care for your forests: mapping your property, improving forest and steam health, reducing wildlife risks, and sustainably harvesting timber and forest products.
Participants learn to create a Forest Stewardship Plan for their property, qualifying them for recognition as a Washington State “Stewardship Forest,” and cost-sharing assistance.
The course is held at Chelan County Fire District 3, 228 Chumstick Highway, Leavenworth, Wash.
