Woodland Academy

The GMF Woodland Academy will provide education for landowners interested in managing their land. From understanding the ecological underpinnings of their land to assessing habitat viability for wildlife, participants will be ready to make informed decisions about the goals they set. The modules will take place in a classroom at the historic and beautiful Yale Forestry Camp before moving into the field to observe and discuss each topic. The program is open to woodland owners, land trust stewards, educators, and engaged citizens. Over the course of three modules, you will learn about the woody plants that make up CT forests and the sites in which they can be found. You will learn about how forests grow and the management principles behind obtaining the goals set for your land. You will learn about the management resources available to woodland owners and the tools you can use to improve your forest structure.

The program includes training and lunch each day. The cost to participants for all three modules is only $75.
