Course Details

The PA Forests Web Seminar Center provides web-based educational programs and materials for forest owners, extension educators, and natural resource professionals.

The center's goal is to offer "live" webinars on forest resource related topics.

To make this learning approach most useful for you and others, we encourage you to provide us with webinar topics for our consideration. To share your ideas and to offer comments please Contact Us.
