Description

The Woods in Your Backyard Workshop teaches stewardship of your land through a one-day workshop.

By enhancing or creating natural areas and woodland, landowners provide habitat for wildlife, improve water quality, expand recreational opportunities, and enhance aesthetics. If parcels connect with others there is opportunity to make an even bigger impact.

Join us to learn how owners of even just a few acres can positively influence the environment by implementing simple stewardship practices.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is designed specifically (but not exclusively) for smaller landowners, those with 1-10 acres. If you own land that is wooded, has natural areas, or you are interested in creating natural areas, providing wildlife habitat, improving water quality, and enhancing aesthetics then this workshop is for you!
