LEXINGTON - The management of privately held woodlands is a family affair. The 2009 Woodland Owners Short Course reflects that view by offering programs based on experience and interest level. A youth program will run concurrently with adult programs.
The course presents essential information and puts landowners in contact with professionals who can help them achieve their management goals. Two concurrent tracks have programs for both seasoned woodland owners and those just beginning. A detailed listing of topics at each location can be found online at www.ca.uky.edu/forestryextension/WOSC.php. The Kentucky Division of Forestry will lead the youth component of this year's short course. It is designed for young people ages 5 to 17.
Each session begins at 9 a.m. and ends around 4:30 p.m. Lunch is included. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Sessions are $25 for individuals, $40 for couples and $5 for youth.
Registration is available online at www.ca.uky.edu/forestryextension/WOSC.php or by calling (859) 257-7597
