Stewardship educational programs offered

Print Article

Roughly 40 percent of the forests in Boundary, Bonner, Kootenai, and Benewah counties are owned by family forest owners.

Over the next year, University of Idaho Extension is again conducting a series of 19 forestry educational programs at 26 locations throughout northern Idaho, to help strengthen family forest owners’ abilities to manage their forest land to meet their goals.

Topics to be covered in 2018’s Strengthening Forest Stewardship Skills series include: forest management planning, forest insects and disease, tree identification, weed control, rural land ownership, forest edibles, forest measurements, backyard forestry, thinning and pruning, and more.

The programs will be held through August 2018. Calendars listing specific program dates and locations are available at local University of Idaho Extension offices.

Detailed information on each of the programs is posted on the University of Idaho Extension Forestry website (uidaho.edu/extension/forestry/programs), six weeks ahead of each program. For more information on specific sessions in the series, contact Chris Schnepf at 208-446-1680, Randy Brooks at 208-885-9663, or Bill Warren at 208-476-4434.

Strengthening Forest Stewardship Skills is part of the Idaho Forest Stewardship Program, a cooperative effort of University of Idaho Extension, the Idaho Department of Lands, U.S. Forest Service, and many other agencies and organizations.
