Offered by WSU Extension Forestry experts, the upcoming Loggers Workshop promotes professionalism and life-long learning, ensuring a healthy future for Inland Northwest woodlands. 

The workshop is 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 25, 2024, at the Ag Trade Center in Colville, Wash. Cost is $20 per person and includes lunch.

“Our program meets continuing education needs for Northwest timberland professionals who require a solid understanding of operational, economic, safety, and regulatory principles,” said host Andy Perleberg, Extension Forestry Team leader. “In addition to receiving credit hours, loggers who take this course can benefit their crews, clients, and our state by ensuring the woods remain safe, productive, and sustainable for future generations.”
