McCleary Coached Planning Course a Huge Success

DNR and WSU Extension offer multi-week courses for landowners interested in developing forest management plans.

WSU Extension and Washington DNR recently concluded an 8-week coached planning course in Grays Harbor County where 31 families improved their understanding of forest ecosystems, the importance of active forest management and how to become even better stewards of their own forestland. The course covered a multitude of topics, including forest ecology, management and health, wildlife habitat and the harvest of non-wood products such as edibles.

Field Day Learning About Wildlife

Class participants were enthusiastic about what they learned and excited to implement these newly acquired skills and understanding across their forestland. We’d love to have you join us at one of our upcoming courses.

The next scheduled Forest Stewardship Coached Planning course starts on Saturday March 11 in Friday Harbor (San Juan County). More information about this course.

Unfortunately, the 2017 Online Coach Planning class is full. Check the WSU Extension Forestry calendar web page for future offerings of this and other classes — online or face-to-face — and find links to publications, videos and other resources.
