Forest Stewardship  Offers "Coached Planning" Short Course

(Port Orchard, WA) – Want to learn about forest health and ecology? The Forest Stewardship “Coached Planning” short course is an educational opportunity for owners of private forestland in Kitsap County. This nine-session series begins Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 6:30 pm. Classes are held in room 406 of the Norm Dicks Government Center located at 345 6th Street in downtown Bremerton. 

The informational, hands-on, practical approach of this evening short course enables landowners to learn useful information about natural resources and their property. The course is of particular benefit to landowners with 5 or more acres of forest land or anyone wishing to apply for current use timber/forest taxation.

This nine-session program is designed to help owners of private family forestlands help themselves by learning and deciding what is best for their individual property. If you want the knowledge to meet your forest stewardship goals, this program is for you.
