Plan to attend a Woodland Owners Short Course in your area

Plan to join KWOA members and other woodland owners for the Woodland Owners Short Course (WOSC). This program, with sponsorship by KWOA, is a great opportunity for you and your family to learn how to enhance your woodlands and get the most from your ownership experience. Most woodland owners are not aware of the wide variety of organizations and programs available to help them care for their woodlands.

Do you have questions such as

  • how to receive a fair price when you sell your timber
  • making your woodlands wildlife friendly
  • or simply making them as healthy as they can be?

If you want to maximize your woodlands and get answers to your questions about them then the WOSC is right for you!

Administered by the University of Kentucky Forestry Extension, the WOSC is designed to assist Kentucky’s woodland owners in the care and management of their woodland resource. It is conducted on a regional basis with full Saturday programs in the east, central and west regions of the state. The regional programs have been developed by local planning committees with local needs in mind and cover a wide variety of subjects. The WOSC offers two programming tracks: green for woodland owners just getting started and gold for those already actively managing their woodlands.
