The Women and their Woods program is a network of forest landowners and professionals who work together in order to cultivate women’s connections to and care of healthy forests. Through newsletters, meetings and workshops, forest landowners learn about forest management topics such as forest ecology, tree identification, forest hydrology, wildlife habitat, and silviculture as well as network and learn from professionals and forest landowner mentors.
The Women and Their Woods program is administered by the Delaware Highlands Conservancy and Penn State Natural Resources Extension with support from the U.S. Forest Service at Grey Towers and the PA Forest Stewardship Program.
The workshop is free and includes lunch on both days. Registration deadline is April 1, 2015.
