Backyard Woods Workshops
Learning to Create & Enhance Natural Areas Around Your Home
Small woodlots, such as the one you may have in your backyard, are a big deal.  The vast majority of "forestland owners" own less 10 acres.  The workshops will take participants through the manual exploring planning and implementation of various land management concepts and tools.  A Resource CD will also be available.  For more about The Woods in Your Backyard manual go to: www.nraes.org.
