Education and outreach organizations

University of Wisconsin-Extension

University of Wisconsin-ExtensionThe University of Wisconsin-Extension is a source of assistance and publications about forest management, forest insect and disease pests, wildlife and many other topics of interest to landowners.

Visit your local UW Extension office or check the UW-Extension's woodland assistance website [exit DNR] or Facebook page [exit DNR] for more information. The sites provide information on classes (in-person and web-based) for woodland owners, interviews with landowners in Wisconsin and a vast collection of publications. Note that UW-Extension bulletins available on the web are now printable.

The Woodland School

Woodland SchoolThe Woodland School is a workshop series for new and experienced land stewards offered through the Aldo Leopold Foundation, a nonprofit [501(c)(3)], conservation organization. The Woodland School helps private and public land managers align their aspirations and actions with their vision and values to improve the health of the land through educational programs that advance their knowledge and skills and builds a network of committed and capable land stewards.

The workshops can be taken as a stand-alone course or as a whole series to build a greater understanding of land stewardship. The workshops are offered the second weekend of the month September through May and consist of half day, full day or two day courses. Courses cover a variety of topics including sustainable forest management, wildlife management, prescribed fire, "Game of Logging" chainsaw safety and more. Visit [exit DNR] to see the current workshop schedule and registration information.

Select Woodland School courses are recognized by the Society of American Foresters (SAF) for Continuing Forestry Education (CFE) credit and by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources as Cooperating Forester Continuing Education/Training credit. Courses and approved credit hours can be found on the website.
