WSU Extension to offer forest stewardship course

SPOKANE – WSU Extensionhas teamed up with the state Department of Natural Resources to offer a forest stewardship coached planning course in January for woodland owners in Chewelah.
The course will help woodland owners optimize their land by covering topics such as wildfire safety, recreational use and revenue from periodic timber harvest.
The course will be 6-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Jan. 26-Mar. 16, at the Chewelah Middle School Library.
Participants will do “homework” each week, identifying forest management goals and contriving a plan to achieve them. Completed plans may qualify landowners for cost-share assistance to implement plans, recognition as a “Stewardship Forest” and reduced property tax rates.
The course series costs $75 per ownership and includes course materials, aerial photos and maps. Advance registration is required. Click here for registration forms and additional information, or contact Erik Sjoquist at 509-477-2175 or
