It is called “Coached Planning” because a major part of this training involves “coaching” participants as they develop simple management plans for their forests.
Among the topics to be covered are: forest ecology; forest health; applied silviculture; wildfire protection; reforestation; responsible timber harvesting; forest soils; riparian area management; fish and wildlife habitat; cultural resources; special forest products; forest recreation; and more.
Course fee is $75 per person, family or land parcel. Participation is limited to 30 registrants on a first-come, first-served basis upon receipt of the registration and fee. Classes will be held weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6 – 9 p.m. at Chelan County Fire District 3 in Leavenworth, WA. The course is taught by the state’s recognized experts from WSU, DNR, and other natural resource agencies. The course has not been held in Chelan County for 10 years, so take advantage of this unique opportunity.
