Forest Tour: Intro to Ecologically-Based Timber Harvesting

July 9 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm PDT

Forest owners in Western Washington are increasingly interested in maintaining forests that provide a broad range of ecological functions and economic goals.

This free workshop will introduce you to the principles and economics of ecological forestry, the tools to implement it successfully on smaller parcels, and the structural and biotic features of forests that help wildlife thrive. Come learn about forest growth, thinning and harvest strategies, and steps you can take to enhance wildlife habitat on your land.

Event Details: Saturday, July 9, 2022, 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at Quilcene, WA
