COOPERATING FOR WOODS AND WILDLIFE WORKSHOP SERIES
Due to concerns relating to COVID-19 and community spread, the Cooperating for Woods and Wildlife workshop series has been postponed to the fall of 2020. See below for new dates and more information.
Empower landowners to improve habitat, manage invasive species, and sustainably manage their woodlands by bringing them together to form group cooperatives. That's the goal of the Woods & Wildlife for Today & Tomorrow Project! Learn more about the Woods and Wildlife for Today and Tomorrow Project Here!
Golden Sands RC&D has worked to bring together 80 landowners in 10 different cooperatives across Central Wisconsin. This workshop series will share information about what these landowners have done and how other landowners across the state can get involved!
Workshops will be held on Saturdays at the Mead Wildlife Visitor Center at 2148 County Hwy S, Milladore, WI 54454 and will include lunch.
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.

Managing invasive plants on your property can help support wildlife and promote healthy forest regeneration. However, 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.

Properly managed woodlands are healthy woodlands. Landowners in cooperatives have the option to collaborate with their 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.
