“Anyone with woodland on their property will benefit from this session,” said WVSU Extension Agent Kristie Martin.

“Join us to learn how you can make the most of your wooded space, whatever your goal—whether you wish to responsibly profit from your woodland, improve its health, enhance its beauty, conserve it for future generations, or simply enjoy it.”

The workshop will demonstrate the MyLandPlan.org planning tool’s use and end with a Q&A session.

Guest speaker David McGill, an extension specialist for forest-resource management with West Virginia University Extension Service, will lead the session.

This live event ties in with WVSU Extension Service’s digital, self-paced spatial mapping training platform for farmers and land managers, Martin said.
