Living on the Land Workshop

 

Living on the Land teaches small acreage landowners management practices that will improve their property, provides sustainability for their farm, offer financial opportunities, and protect the environment. This course deals with the real-life issues landowners must address when trying to manage their land.  The class will be held on Wednesday nights from September 11 till November 6, 6:00 – 8:30 pm.  Learn how to improve the soil, reduce mud and weeds, keep livestock healthy, and reduce chore time?   Find out practical tips for making a small acreage farm more efficient and profitable.  You must registrar by September 1.  The $25.00 (per family) class fee is due for registration to be complete.  Class size is limited to 25.  The workshops, sponsored by Washington State University Extension, will be held in the Lewis County Administration Building located at 351 NW North Street in Chehalis.  For more information, contact Julie Pirtle at 740-1212 or Julie.Pirtle@lewiscountywa.gov

Come join other landowners for a day of learning in the woods!

 

Whether you own a “home in the woods” or many acres of land, this “out in the woods” educational event is packed with practical “how-to” information that you need to know.

Stewarding land is both rewarding and challenging. Successful management is due to the decisions you make and the actions you take. Attending the Family Forest Field Day will prepare you to plan and execute sound practices, enabling you to accomplish your management objectives, reduce risks, and protect your financial investment.

 

Don’t own land but are still interested in learning more about forests?  Maybe you’re thinking about buying some forestland but want to see what you’re getting into?  All are welcome!
