Cultivating Forest Stewardship in Youth
Like planting a tree, the act of spreading forest stewardship ethic to youth is an undertaking filled with hope and purpose. This session will discuss how forest landowners can reach out and teach youth, their own and others, about caring for the forests they will use and possibly own in the future. The bottom line is to get them outside and connect youth with the forest in safe and meaningful ways.
