Learn About Your Land is a UW-Madison Extension Forestry program intended for Wisconsin woodland owners. The series of classes introduces landowners to forestry topics and local DNR foresters. All classes will run 1.5 hours with the last 15 minutes reserved for YOUR QUESTIONS.

Session 1: Get to Know Your Local Trees and Invasive Plants – 6:00-7:30 PM Tuesday 9/5/23

Join a forester as you get to know what trees are in your woods.  We will review the major trees and invasive plants you will likely find on your property, how to identify others after the class and learn some uses each tree has.

Session 2: Invite Wildlife to your Woodland – 6:00-7:30 PM Tuesday 9/12/23

Learn to enhance your woodlands to attract a variety of wildlife. This session identifies the four requirements to attracting wildlife to your land: space, water, food and shelter, as well as how you can manage your woods to improve the habitat.

Session 3: People, Programs and Planning: Assistance with Your Woods – 6:00-7:30 PM Tuesday 9/19/23

Planting a tree

The creation of a healthy woodland requires knowledge of forestry techniques, and the investment of time and money. This session will link you to the people, programs and organizations that offer technical and financial assistance for all aspects of your woodland.  We will also take you through the beginning steps of woodland management.  Start by considering what is important to you, and learn what resources will be needed to make your vision a reality.

Fees must be paid online by September 4 to attend the first week.  Connection information and additional instructions will be sent to the email used when registering.
