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.

The cost is $15 to attend all three classes. Fees must be paid online by September 25 to attend the first week.  Additional instructions for logging in to the virtual classroom will be sent to the email used when registering.
