Train as a Woodland Steward

Then help your neighbors keep our forests healthy

    Mythology gave each of nature’s kingdoms its guardian. Forests and trees had Dryads, with oak trees having their own special nymphs, the Hamadryades.
    Act quickly and you can step up as a modern guardian, training in a class of 25 as a Maryland Woodland Steward in a three-and-a-half day seminar October 4 to 7 at Shepherd’s Spring Center near Sharpsburg,
    University of Maryland Eastern Shore partners with the Ruffled Grouse Society to bring woodland owners and managers together as specialists in forest and wildlife management. You’ll graduate as a advocate committed to both applying what you’ve learned on your property and to teaching others.
    Lodging, food and instructional materials are included in the $95 fee. Information: [email protected]. Apply by June 30: http://extension.umd.edu/events/series/619
