Description

Take time during the “off-season” for forestry education

Is it time to sharpen both your knowledge and your chainsaw?

Do you want to learn new things about enjoying and caring for your property? Do you want to learn things like how to grow gourmet mushrooms; why so many trees are dying and what to do; how to sharpen, maintain, and safely operate your chainsaw; how to handle problematic legal issues like easements and trespass; how to improve wildlife habitat; and much more? If so, this Winter School is for you!

Winter School is the classroom counterpart to our summer field days. It is designed to let you attend multiple workshops on topics of interest to you all in the same day. Winter School to help you address challenges on your property, restore healthy forest conditions, and achieve your goals. Winter School will featuremore than a dozen workshops specifically for people with forested property in the region. The Winter School will also feature exhibits by local agencies that assist owners of forested property.

Come to the Winter School and:

  • Get practical, “how-to” advice on simple stewardship practices
  • Talk with agency and natural resource professionals from Eastern and Western Washington who are available to assist you in meeting your family’s goals
  • Meet other landowners (maybe a neighbor!)
  • See equipment displays and speak to vendors

Whether you are a “novice” to family forestry, or your family has owned land for many generations, there is something new for everyone to learn.

Pre-registration includes lunch!


Workshops and classes will range from 1 to 2 hours. Throughout the day, and a dozen topics will be presented for you to choose from! By the end of the day, you will have attended up to six sessions. In addition, there will be a resource area featuring exhibitors, vendors, and displays by public, private, and nonprofit organizations that provide products and services to assist landowners.
