The Forest Stewards Guild is working with partners to increase oak forest resiliency in southern New England and elsewhere. To be successful, foresters and allied professionals need to be able to communicate with landowners in a way that speaks to their motivations and helps them take specific actions. As we practice social distancing, this webinar will provide an opportunity to brush up on our skills before we return to the field and in-person meetings. We will discuss targeted messaging and ways to communicate with different types of landowners about the values their woods provide and the potential benefits of active management.
This event was part of a larger project funded by the USDA Forest Service on Increasing Resiliency in Southern New England’s Oak Forests.
National SAF CEUs pending. This event has been approved for 1 CEU for Connecticut and Massachusetts Licensed Foresters.
