Learn forest stewardship through online course from King County and WSU

Forests are a defining feature of King County’s natural ecosystems and rural character, and they are a source of sustainable forest products.

Discover the many ways private forestland owners can improve stewardship of their land’s resources through two new education opportunities offered by King County and sponsored by Washington State University Extension’s Forest Stewardship Program.

All King County forestland owners are invited to take part in a live, online webinar series, beginning April 24 and running every Tuesday evening from 6-9 p.m. through June 5.

The webinar will feature natural resource professionals who will show participants how to prepare a forest stewardship plan, which can qualify landowners for property tax reductions and cost share assistance.

Participants will also learn how to keep their forestlands healthy and productive, attract more wildlife, and achieve specific ownership objectives.

Cost of the webinar series is $175 before March 31, or $200 beginning March 31 and leading up to the first class. Register athttp://snohomish.wsu.edu/forestry/forestryevents.htm. For more information, contact Kevin Zobrist, kzobrist@wsu.edu, or 425-357-6017.
