August 14 - November 12, 2023
The newest cohort for the Master Woodland Steward program will begin in August in Lake County and Cook County in northeast Minnesota. Master Woodland Steward teaches family forest owners and forest caretakers the ins and outs of forest health, management for recreation and wildlife, estate planning and taxes, and more. The Master Woodland Steward program uses a hybrid course design. Each unit is presented as an online, self-paced module with readings, exercises and a group discussion board. Semi-regular Zoom meetings give learners a chance to ask questions of instructors and contribute to group learning by sharing their own experiences. Participants also attend three in-person field sessions throughout the course. Registration is limited to 35 participants and is open until August 13th, so sign up early to secure your spot!
