Minnesota Woodland Steward program

Minnesota Woodland Steward is a comprehensive education program that 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.

Each program unit is an online, self-paced module with readings, exercises and a group discussion board. Scheduled 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.

If you own property with woodlands, steward woodlands, or are looking to buy wooded property and just want to see what you’re in for, the Minnesota Woodland Steward program can help you become a successful woodland steward.
