Penn State Renewable Natural Resources December Webinars
Below is a listing of the upcoming Penn State Renewable Natural Resources Extension Team's December webinars. Please be sure to tune in and share with others that may be interested.
PA Forest Stewardship Webinar Series: Top Issues Faced by Woodland Owners, Tuesday, December 8, 2015, 12 and 7 p.m. ET.
Why do you own woodlands? This is an interesting question, and one you have likely asked yourself. Individually, everyone likely has myriad reasons for holding woodlands. Hopefully your woodlands bring levels of satisfaction and enjoyment to life; however, you likely have questions, issues, challenges, and uncertainties associated with your land. In this webinar, we will look at the some of the top issues identified through surveys and discussions with Pennsylvania woodland owners. It is one thing to identify the issues; it is another thing to find resources to attain resolution. We cannot promise to cover your issue or provide the solution you need. However, this process might open new conversations, find new resources, and help you conserve and better manage your woodlands. Presented by Jim Finley, Ibberson Professor of Forest Management and Director of the Center for Private Forests at Penn State.
