February 24 workshop - Tools for Engaging Landowners Effectively

Workshop Description:

Tools for Engaging Landowners Effectively (TELE) is a program of the Sustaining Family Forests Initiative aimed at helping natural resource professionals conduct more strategic and effective outreach to family woodland owners. The TELE approach is being used throughout the country by natural resource professionals and organizations. The basis of TELE is to apply a social marketing approach – the use of commercial marketing techniques to affect positive social change- as a promising means by which to influence family forest owners to take steps to conserve and sustainably manage their land. This approach will help you speak more meaningfully and persuasively to CT landowners. This workshop will be lead by CFPA’s Education Director, Emma Kravet, and the Sustaining Family Forests Initiative's Program Assistant, Lindsay White.

Webinar: Restoration Forestry in the Lake States

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - 12:00
  • Webinar 12pm CST on Tuesday, January 31st
  • Presenter: Peter Bundy

Restoration forestry is the art and science of returning degraded forest lands to health. Restoration assumes that the landscape has been disturbed or degraded from past events. These events often originate from human hands: past practices such as intensive agriculture, logging and mining. They also originate from other natural causes: wind, wildfire and insects. Whatever the cause, the health of the forest has been compromised; its resilience reduced.
