Henderson County Center Pine Straw Harvesting in Longleaf Pine Forests: Best Management Guidelines to Sustain Wildlife Resources Thu Apr 23, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension www.forestrywebinars.net
— 4 days away

What will you learn?
This webinar will discuss how longleaf landowners can balance income from pine straw harvesting while also preserving critical wildlife benefits of straw-harvested stands. Balancing the economic and environmental benefits of pine straw can be challenging to landowners and natural resource scientists alike, as maximizing one can compromise the other. Developed with input from a technical committee of wildlife and longleaf experts, the draft Best Management Guidelines (BMGs) presented in this discussion offer practical guidance to how pine straw harvesting can be integrated into a larger management system that minimizes impacts to wildlife while allowing forest owners to earn important income before thinning, and eventually transitioning to an open, fire-maintained, woodland-savanna condition that can be particularly favorable to wildlife. We will be seeking feedback and discussion on the proposed BMGs at the conclusion of the webinar.

BMGs can be accessed at: http://online.nwf.org/pinestrawbmg

Ben Larson, Forestry and Bioenergy Program Manager at National Wildlife Federation

Henderson County Center [ProNR] Emergency Planning Webinar Thu Apr 30, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension www.forestrywebinars.net
— 2 weeks away

What will you learn?
Severe weather events are becoming more and more common and the costs of clean-up and service disruption can be substantial. The purpose of emergency planning is to mitigate, respond, and recover from an emergency or natural disaster in a timely manner. Incorporating tree inventories, risk assessments, and remedial and routine tree maintenance as part of your emergency management plan can help in withstanding the impacts of changes to the urban forest. How do you get organized?

Speaker: Connie Head, Consulting Urban Forester, Technical Forestry Services

The Sustainable Forestry Teachers' Academy is a multi-day residential program that focuses on the social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainable forestry. Teachers will visit a variety of forests and mills learning about forest management and the manufacturing of various wood products such as paper, furniture, plywood and lumber. Teachers participate in tours and hikes in forests under a variety of ownership and management plans. Excursions to museums, state forests, experimental forests, and environmental learning centers round out the experience.

Participants should expect a fast-paced week, with extended moderate walking in wooded areas, some stair climbing, and walking on raised open catwalks in mills and production facilities. For your safety and the safety of others, please consider your ability to participate in these activities when applying for the academies. We also strive to provide great food, plenty of networking opportunities, and a fun and engaging learning environment. In addition, training in the Project Learning Tree curriculum and other extensive materials and discussions prepare participants to transfer what they have learned back to the classroom. CEU renewal credits (18-25 contact hours) and EE Certification credits will be awarded.
