August 1, 2012 – North Carolina State University’s Forestry & Environmental Outreach Program is co-sponsoring a series of four workshops for private forest landowners called the Woodland Steward Series: Mountains Program. From its inception in 2003, which marked the official re-opening of the Biltmore Forest School, the series has helped promote a healthy environment by educating private landowners about land management.
The first two workshops were very successful. The final two will occur August 15th – August 17th at Bent Creek Experimental Forest, Asheville, NC, and the Cradle of Forestry, Brevard, NC. They will be led by natural resource and land management specialists, and will include both hands-on activities in the field and instruction in the classroom.
