Event Details

Perhaps the most important ecological service of our forests is providing clean water. Forest roads can significantly affect our forests by altering their natural hydrology and the functions of streams. Roads are also essential for managing our forests; they are our haul routes for timber, our recreational trails, our driveways.

 

Join us and learn how you can manage your forest

for what matters to you.

 

This class will introduce participants to the principles of forest hydrology, as well as forest road planning and maintenance. Topics will include: forest hydrology 101, forest road planning and design, forest road maintenance, funding and technical assistance programs. Following an indoor presentation, participants will join technical experts for a site tour to see how good road maintenance and construction can provide benefits to a forest. 

From 9:30 am to 12:30 pm the class meets inside at the library. In the afternoon, the class travels to a nearby forest for on the ground training to end by 5:00 pm. For more details, check out:

Northwest Natural Resource Group, Washington Department of Natural Resources, and Skagit Conservation District

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Northwest Natural Resource Group (NNRG) are collaborating to help forest landowners to enhance stream habitat and improve forest roads on private lands in Skagit County.

The iconic Skagit Watershed is important to all of us for its production of timber, food, and fiber. It is also significant in that it is the only river system in Puget Sound to support all five species of Pacific salmon. This project is supported by our partners: Skagit Conservation District, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service and is funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
