Woodland Stewards offers a variety of educational programs across the state for woodland owners and those interested in learning more about the forests of Ohio. Some classes are designed to help a woodland owner form a solid foundation for their future woodland education (Name That Tree) while others build on the basics to provide more in depth coverage of specific topics (Improving Your Forest) or deal with new and/or emerging topics such as Emerald Ash Borer and Asian Longhorned Beetle.

* Please note: While a minimum of 20 participants per class is required, class sizes may be limited due to the host facility and at the instructors request. Be sure to sign up early to get your spot!
