May 27th - June 14th, 2016 Forestry Tour to Sweden & Norway
The Oregon Woodland Cooperative (OWC), Washington Co. Small Woodlands Association (WCSWA) and Oregon State University Forestry & Natural Resources Extension (OSU) have organized a tour to Scandinavia especially for small woodland owners, forestry professionals and forest products producers. Guided by experienced foresters, this educational tour will focus on private forestry in Sweden and Norway and the role of woodland owner cooperatives. We will meet private woodland owners and tour their tree farms, see harvesting equipment in action, and visit forestry companies, sawmills, equipment manufacturers, and forestry museums. In addition, tour participants will see and experience outstanding natural beauty in the farms, forests, mountains and fjords of Sweden and Norway, and enjoy the cultural highlights of the towns and cities along the way. Includes special group-rate international airfare. Travel will be by private motor coach and accommodation in first-class hotels.

June 3rd, 2016 Citizen Fire Academy
Citizen Fire Academy (CFA) is a program designed to provide participants with a working knowledge of fire behavior, strategies to improve fire resilience on their properties and in the community,
and an opportunity to get to know the agencies and people involved in preparing for and fighting fire. The CFA program is delivered through a combination of in-class instruction, online
learning, and field tours. Participants finish the class with a self-prepared Wildfire Preparedness Plan for themselves or their neighborhood. Whether you are a property owner, landscape
professional, community leader or simply an interested member of the public, if you recognize how wildfire can pose a threat to you or your community, but want to know more about what to do, the
CFA program is for you. Take a look at the brochure and register by mail or
online by May 20th to reserve your spot! Online registration at https://secure.oregonstate.edu/osuext/register/1014.
June 4th, 2016 Ecological Forestry 101: Intro to Silviculture and Wildlife
With careful stewardship, forests can be perpetually managed on a regenerative cycle that allows for multiple entries and a sustained yield of a broad range of high-value forest products. The timing and design of thinning practices can result in a wide variety of forest conditions depending on the landowners’ objectives—including those that benefit wildlife habitat, forest health, and long-term income generation.
This workshop will introduce you to the principles of ecological forestry as well as tools to implement it successfully on smaller parcels. Learn about harvest management strategies and how they relate to wildlife habitat.
