Forest landowners and aspiring landowners from across the mid-Atlantic region are invited to attend a virtual educational retreat to learn more about managing their forestland and connecting with other forest landowners. As guidance continues to unfold regarding the gathering of groups in the Fall of 2020, the Delaware Highlands Conservancy and their partners are poised to offer the 2020 Women and Their Woods educational retreat online!
The Women and Their Woods Educational Retreat is an in-depth, fun, engaging, and thought-provoking workshop on caring for your woodlands now and into the future. No matter the size of your woodlands or if you’re not yet an owner, join us while we learn, network, and apply new knowledge about good forest stewardship. Retreat sessions are presented by professionals from a variety of organizations and offer insights into connecting to your land and understanding what you have; identifying your forest values and planning goals in a changing landscape; and planning the next steps for your forest, your legacy, and ways to stay connected to the Women and Their Woods network.
The cost per applicant is $150.00 and includes 8-12 hours of online presentations, 12 hours of facilitated and discussion-based learning opportunities, as well as meeting materials, supplies, and resources shipped directly to you prior to the start of the retreat.
By submitting your application, you agree to fully participate by viewing all online presentations and attending all virtual meetings which will be held at 6pm on the following Thursdays in the Fall: Sept 10, Sept 24, Oct 8, Oct 22, Nov 5, and Nov 19 (schedule is subject to change).
Scholarships may be available; please inquire. Space at the retreat is limited to 30 applicants. Application fees are non-refundable after August 1.
