PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University Extension’s forestry and wildlife educators have scheduled a series of “Ties to the Land” workshops across the state in November and December to help families plan the orderly transfer of privately owned forestland from one generation to the next.
“We have scheduled them close enough together so that family members that may be separated by the Cascades can take the same workshop at the location most convenient for them,” said Janean Creighton, WSU Extension natural resources coordinator.
“Ties to the Land” is an award-winning curriculum developed by estate planning experts at Oregon State University and the Austin Family Business Program. It has been adapted for use in Washington. Each family will receive a “Ties to the Land” workbook and companion DVD which is designed to help families continue planning at home.
The workshops are scheduled:
- Nov. 3 and 24, Colville
- Nov. 6 and Dec. 4, White Salmon
- -Nov. 6 and Dec. 4, Des Moines
- Nov. 13 and Dec. 4, Republic
- Nov. 18 and Dec. 10, Dayton
- Nov. 19 and Dec. 10, Spokane
- Nov. 20 and Dec. 11, Snohomish
Registration fees vary and enrollment is limited. More information on each workshop can be found at http://ext.nrs.wsu.edu/newsevents/index.htm.
