Do you own forestland? Or do you have dreams of owning a small woodlot someday? Either way, you may be interested in attending a Forest Owners Field Day; the next events are July 27 in Sumas and August 24 in Forks.

Forestland management can be challenging but also rewarding.

Learn from experts in forest and range health, wildlife habitat, grazing, soils, fire protection, forestry skills, and timber and non-timber forest products. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to meet other forestland owners who agree that forestlands are vital to the quality of life in Washington state.

Keep informed about these and other educational, landowner assistance events, courses and workshops in DNR’s Small Forest Landowner News, a bi-monthly e-newsletter that’s free and chock full of information articles for anyone who owns forestland or, really, any land.
