COOPERATING FOR WOODS AND WILDLIFE WORKSHOP SERIES
Due to persisting concerns related to COVID-19, the workshop series has been canceled and will be substituted with a three part video series that will be available on this page in September. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact us for additional information.
Golden Sands RC&D has joined over 90 landowners with their neighbors across 8 counties forming 10 DMAP cooperatives. Golden Sands RC&D currently services 12 counties in central Wisconsin where it is working through a newly funded 2020 US Forest Service project to develop more cooperatives. Since enrolling, landowners have been empowered to cooperatively manage invasive species and have participated in joint timber sales. Attend one or all of our workshops to learn about improving wildlife habitat, invasive species control and forest management.Together, neighbors can learn and develop strategies to work together to enhance forest health and wildlife habitat!
Wildlife don't acknowledge property boundaries. They depend on diverse habitat types across large areas. If you want to provide for abundant, healthy wildlife populations, you need to consider habitat beyond your property. At this workshop, speakers will share information about working collaboratively to enhance wildlife habitat. The topics discussed will appeal to wildlife watchers and hunters alike.
Cooperating for Wildlife Habitat:
Managing invasive plants on your property can help support wildlife and promote healthy forest regeneration. Invasive plant management can become difficult if species are re-introduced from neighboring properties. Speakers at this workshop will share information about involving your neighbors in invasive plant control to help maintain forest health and support wildlife.
Cooperating for Forest Management:
Properly managed woodlands are healthy woodlands. Landowners in cooperatives can collaborate with neighbors to conduct shared timber sales and other forest management activities. At this workshop, we'll share information about large-scale private forest management, shared timber sales, and forestry cost-share programs.
