VANCOUVER, Wash. – Washington State University Extension and multiple partner organizations will offer an all-day educational event for small forest landowners in the region. Experts from Washington and Oregon will talk on an array of topics relevant to private forest owners at the WSU-Vancouver Library on Feb. 8.

Classes will be available on forest health, wildlife habitat, soils, timber and non-timber forest products, fire protection, and more.

The educational event features practical how-to information for people, from those who own a home in the woods to people who own many acres of forest land. The Forest Owners Winter School will prepare attendees on how to plan and execute sound practices, enabling people to accomplish management objectives, reduce risks, and protect financial investments. It is also an opportunity to network with professionals and other landowners who can help you achieve your goals on your property.

Cost is $25 per person or $35 per family if registered before Jan. 31, $35 and $45 after.
