Land trust field staff field staff (land trust stewardship and agency field staff) who work with private forest land owners are invited to register for a Forest Stewardship Workshop for Professionals, set for April 9-11 at the UM Lumbrecht Experimental Forest. The bulk of the seminar will focus on familiarizing attendees with the elements of stewardship plans and reviewing the skills needed to produce one. Ryan Lutey of The Vital Ground Foundation will be discussing how Vital Ground integrates forest stewardship/management in its easements, specifically emphasizing the function and utility of forest stewardship plans in the long-term process of monitoring and enforcing easements. See the brochure for more details. The three-day workshop is provided at a pretty amazing rate of $110 thanks to significant underwriting from The Forest Service, Department of Natural Resources and Conservation and MSU Extension.
