Penn State Extension Woods In Your Backyard Webinar Series For Forest Landowners

A new 8-part Woods In Your Backyard Webinar Series by Penn State Extension and its partners will teach forest landowners sustainable stewardship skills and techniques for managing their land.

This online workshop is designed specifically (but not exclusively) for smaller landowners, those with 1-10 acres.

By enhancing or creating natural areas and woodland, landowners provide habitat for wildlife, improve water quality, expand recreational opportunities, and enhance aesthetics.

If parcels connect with others there is opportunity to make an even bigger impact.

The webinars will be held February 6, 13, 20, 27 and March 6, 13, 20, 27 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The workshop uses the manual The Woods in Your Backyard: Learning to Create and Enhance Natural Areas Around Your Home. This self-directed book will guide participants through the process of developing and implementing projects to enhance their land’s natural resources.

Each participant will receive a complimentary, full-color, 108 page copy of The Woods in Your Backyard manual (a $29 value).

Other partners in this webinar series include the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Alliance of the Chesapeake Bay and the Forestry for the [Chesapeake] Bay Program.
