Heard in the Woods: Learning from What Landowners Have to Say

This interactive webinar explored some of the common perceptions (both true and false) held by Pennsylvania's private forest landowners. Recordings of both sessions are posted.

Statements commonly made by landowners about their woods, wildlife, forest pests, and timber management are used to facilitate sharing and learning. Using a "peer to peer" and "mediated" learning approach, the presenters ask participants what they think about several statements presented to them. Participants are encouraged to write in their responses and share personal thoughts and experiences during the webinar. The presenters then respond and share their own comments and knowledge. Questions and further discussion are encouraged after each statement is covered.
