Event Description: 

Are you a woodland owner or property manager who wants to learn more about your woods and the critters that call it home?

Apply for the 2016 Coverts Project, a volunteer training program in forest and wildlife management.  Learn how well-planned forest management can improve wildlife habitat and provide other benefits as well.  The goals of the project are two-fold:

  1. to help you understand why and how management can enhance habitat and improve forest health and productivity;
  2. to inspire and help you to pass your knowledge on to your peers. 

Have a wonderful experience as you join a network of like-minded people who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Plus you receive the Coverts Project reference materials which allow you to answer questions on forestry and wildlife or direct the inquiry to a professional who can. We ask you to return to your community and share what you have learned with others: to create opportunities for other landowners to get answers to their questions.
