Event Details

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 feature 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, sponsored by the Washington Tree Farm Program. Washington Tree Farm Program Logo


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. 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.

Washington State University Extension Forestry

We are locally-based Washington State University faculty and staff dedicated to providing objective, research-based information and resources to forest and woodland owners in the North Puget Sound Area. This program serves Island, King, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, and Snohomish Counties. WSU Extension has additional forestry programs that serve other parts of the state.

We offer a variety of forestry classes, publications, and online resources that are designed for people with just a few acres of woods as well those with larger forests or tree farms. Whether you are interested in a healthy forest, wildlife, timber production, the beauty and aesthetics of a natural area, or some combination thereof, we have research-based answers to help you get the most out of your property.
