Whether you own forested land or just want to learn more about the forests in which we live and play, Sound Forests can connect you with forest stewardship information for Snohomish County and Camano Island. The District works closely with the WSU Extension Puget Sound Forest Stewardship Program, who provides education and technical assistance to forest landowners – including classes, workshops, and online learning modules, a monthly newsletter, and an online library of over 40 publications and videos to help you manage your forest. Visit the Puget Sound Forest Stewardship website to learn more or contact Kevin Zobrist, WSU Area Extension Educator at kzobrist(at)wsu.edu.
