Join the Woodland Stewards Landowner Education program!

The Woodland Stewards Regional Extension Program for Landowners is a series of webinars planned to help you learn more about your woods and how to take action to manage them. This is the third year of the program and this year, you can join the live webinars yourself through the links below. You will need to register for each webinar separately.



What is it?

Weekly live webinar presentations about topics that will help woodland and forest landowners manage their woodlands. 

What will it cover?

This is the third round of the Woodland Stewards series and this year the focus is on taking action in managing woodlands. The four webinars will help landowners to narrow down their land management objectives, learn about tools that can help them, stay safe as they work on their land, and help them put their knowledge into action.

How do I join?                                                                                                                                                                                                   Register for each webinar in the session by clicking on the link and going to the Forestry Webinar Portal. There is also a "calendar" reminder that you can download to add directly to your outlook, google, ical or other computer based calendar. You will return to the same link when the webinar starts. 


What if I miss a webinar, will they be recorded?                                                                                                                                                 All webinars will be recorded and will be available a few days after the presentation, at the same link.
