If you own property with woodlands, steward woodlands, or are looking to buy wooded property and want to learn more about woodland management, the Master Woodland Steward program can help you become a successful woodland steward. This comprehensive program teaches family forest owners and forest caretakers the ins and outs of forest health, timber harvesting, management for recreation and wildlife, estate planning, tax incentive programs and more.

The program uses a hybrid course design. Each unit is presented as an online, self-paced module with readings, exercises and a group discussion board. Three Zoom meetings give learners a chance to ask questions of instructors and contribute to group learning by sharing their own experiences. Participants also attend three in-person field sessions throughout the course, which will be held in Cook or Lake Counties.

Master Woodland Steward: Northeast Arrowhead runs from August 14 - November 13, 2023. A full schedule with dates and times is available on the course syllabus.


People who own or steward property with woodlands will find the most value in this course, but all interested learners are welcome.
