Educational Programs

  • Woodland Stewardship Education
    University of Maryland Extension:  The Woodland Stewardship Education (WSE) program helps connect woodland property owners to their land. Through a variety of Extension offerings, WSE brings together professionals from such fields as forestry, wildlife ecology, and natural resource management to enable woodland property owners to make sound and informed decisions about managing their land.

  • Forests for the Bay
    The goal of Forests for the Bay is to educate landowners about the connection between healthy woodlands and clean water and that the healthiest woods are managed. The number of private woodland owners in this region is increasing rapidly as forestry budgets to address their needs are shrinking. Forests for the Bay is intended to help fill that service gap.

  • Maryland Forest Conservancy Boards
    Promoting and preserving the forestlands in Maryland.
