Woodland workshop to take stock


BRYAN, Ohio – Learn how and why to take stock of your woods at the Tri-state Woodland and Wildlife Workshop, 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 3, in Bryan in northwest Ohio.
Forestry and wildlife experts from Ohio, Michigan and Indiana will speak on such topics as tree identification, timber marketing, tax considerations and reforestation plus bats, insects, woodland ponds and how to use a camera to census wildlife – in all, nearly 20 general and concurrent sessions, with a keynote talk by Purdue University forest ecology professor George Parker.
Inventory. Organizers said a portion of this year’s workshop will be spent examining the benefits of inventorying your woodlot, not just walking through it.
Registration, which includes lunch, breaks and a resource CD (comprehensive woodland and wildlife management information from all three states), is $30 per person by Oct. 26 and $40 person after Oct. 26.
