WSU launches suite of new forestry classes
WSU Extension has launched a whole suite of online classes for small forest landowners in Washington. WSU has 21 classes to choose from, with more in the works. This is a huge leap forward in the quality, quantity, and accessibility of our educational resources for landowners.
The classes are available at: http://extension.wsu.edu/forestry/FSU/Pages/default.aspx
WSU also has a brand new WSU Extension publication on promoting biodiversity in managed forests in Washington that may be of interest to landowners you work with: https://pubs.wsu.edu/ItemDetail.aspx?ProductID=15459 (print copies are available for sale, or a PDF can be downloaded free)
Extension programs and employment are available to all without discrimination. Evidence of noncompliance may be reported through your local Extension office.
