Lunch Zoom: Managing Your Woodlands
Develop a plan for your trees
Time & Location
Jul 28, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CDT
About the Event
Woman landowners and the Lorax are kindred tree-protecting spirits, although instead of Truffula Trees we embrace our Wisconsin species like Aspen, Sugar Maple and Red Pine. Woodlands offer unique opportunities as well as challenges to manage. In this session, we’ll be talking all things forest and how to develop a long-term conservation plan for your woodlands that reflects your conservation values. Connect with conservation experts, meet other inspiring Wisconsin women that share your love for the trees, and learn about NRCS resources to support your conservation goals.
Session will be recorded and link sent to all registrants.
Speakers: Lauren Larsen, Natural Resources Educator, Forestry, UW Extension
Adena Rissman/NLO Project
Hosts: Elena Byrne, Renewing the Countryside & Stephanie Coffman, MOSES
Woman Landowner Share: Margaret Parsons, Women of WWOA Steering Committee
