Women landowners and natural resource professionals interested in learning more about the management and conservation of private lands are invited to attend a ForestHer NC workshop. The workshop is scheduled for Aug. 29, from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the Burke County Center, located at 130 Ammons Drive, in Morganton. The workshop costs $25 per person and pre-registration is required.
During the workshop, participants will learn about North Carolina’s forest ecosystems; identify the types of forests they own and/or manage; and understand the role their woodland plays in the greater landscape. Other topics include defining and balancing multiple land management objectives, obtaining a forest management plan, reading aerial photographs and topo maps, and identifying resources available locally to help with land management.
