Event Details

Many forest owners in the Pacific Northwest are interested in maintaining forests that provide a broad range of economic and ecological values. With careful stewardship, forests can be perpetually managed on a regenerative cycle that allows for multiple entries and a sustained yield of a broad range of high-value forest products. The timing and design of thinning practices can result in a wide variety of forest conditions depending on the landowners’ objectives - including those that benefit wildlife habitat, forest health, and long term income generation.

 

Join us and learn how you can manage your forest for what matters to you.

 

This class will introduce woodland owners to the principles of ecological forestry as well as tools to implement it successfully on smaller parcels. Topics will include harvest management strategies from clear-cutting to selective harvest and how they relate to wildlife habitat. 

 

In the morning, speakers will include:

  • Rolf Gersonde, silviculturist and researcher for the City of Seattle’s Cedar River Watershed
  • Ken Bevis, landowner assistance fish and wildlife biologist for the Department of Natural Resources

 

In the afternoon, participants will join technical experts for a tour of a nearby forest to see examples of harvests projects and learn how they can manage their own projects that can provide periodic income, enhance forest structure and wildlife habitat.

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.
