08/02/2018: "Forestry Field Day For Woodland Owners"

With an alarming increase in the number of dead trees throughout the islands, taking better care of forested areas is critical. Owners of wooded property in the San Juan Islands will build skills for caring for their land and trees at the San Juan Islands Forest Owners Field Day on Saturday, August 25th from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Thornbush Farm on San Juan Island.

Washington State University Extension, San Juan County, the San Juan Islands Conservation District, and the Washington Department of Natural Resources will host the all-day outdoor event, which will feature workshops, demonstrations, tours, and resources on a variety of topics for forest property owners of all skill levels (from “newbie” to seasoned veteran).

Participants will can choose up to five workshops to attend. Topics include forest health issues in the San Juan Islands, wildlife, fire prevention, mushroom cultivation, Garry oak restoration, and more. There will also be vendor exhibits and time for participants to network with professionals and fellow forest stewards.

Pre-registration is not required, but those who pre-register will get discounted registration fees. Pre-register before August 16th to get the early-bird rate. Save even more by registering together with a neighbor. Youth under 18 may attend for free. There is a special student and Master Gardener rate (call for details).

To learn more, register, and get a complete list of workshop topics, visit contact WSU Extension Forestry at 425-357-6023.

Extension programs are available to all without discrimination. Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication or program information or reasonable accommodation should contact WSU Extension Forestry at least two weeks before the event.
