Woods in Your Backyard Webinar Series

Offered by Penn State Extension
Wednesdays, January 29-March 25, 2020, 7-8 PM

The Woods in Your Backyard Webinar Series teaches stewardship of your land through nine, one hour, live online evening lectures that can be viewed from the convenience of your home computer. By enhancing or creating natural areas and woodland, landowners provide habitat for wildlife, improve water quality, expand recreational opportunities, and enhance aesthetics. If parcels connect with others there is opportunity to make an even bigger impact. Join us to learn how owners of even just a few acres can positively influence the environment by implementing simple stewardship practices. Live lectures are recorded and can be viewed again.

This online workshop is designed specifically (but not exclusively) for smaller landowners, those with 1-10 acres. If you own land that is wooded, have natural areas, or you are interested in creating natural areas, providing wildlife habitat, improving water quality, and enhancing aesthetics then this workshop is for you!

The workshop uses the manual The Woods in Your Backyard: Learning to Create and Enhance Natural Areas Around Your Home. This self-directed book will guide participants through the process of developing and implementing projects to enhance their land’s natural resources. Each participant will receive a complimentary, full-color, 108 page copy of The Woods in Your Backyard manual (a $29 value).
