Extension experts can help forest-owning families pass on their land to the next generation.

Family forest and farm owners in southeastern Washington can learn how to steward and pass their lands to the next generation, at WSU Extension’s award-winning “Ties to the Land” succession planning workshop, Tuesday, Nov. 12 in Asotin, Wash.

Held in cooperation with the Asotin County Conservation District, succession planning helps families maintain their ties to the land across multiple generations, building awareness of the main challenges facing family farms and forests, and motivating families to solve them.

This facilitated, interactive workshop shares tools that families can use to decide the future of their land.

The workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Bennet Building at the Asotin County Fairgrounds. Registration is $50 per family or ownership, and includes one workbook, a USB video and reference collection, refreshments, and lunch for one person. Additional lunches may be purchased at least one week in advance for $10.

Enrollment is limited to 30 families and registration is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, contact Andy Perleberg, (509) 667-6540, andyp@wsu.edu. To view all upcoming events, please visit forestry.wsu.edu.
