2016 Kentucky Woodland Owners Short Course Program

Make plans to join us for the 2016 Woodland Owners Short Course (WOSC). This program is a great opportunity for you and your family to learn how to enhance your woodlands and get the most from your ownership experience. Most woodland owners are not aware of the wide variety of organizations and programs available to help them care for their woodlands. Do you have questions about: how to receive a fair price when you sell your timber, making your woodlands wildlife friendly, or simply making them as healthy as they can be? If you want to maximize your woodlands and get answers to your questions about them then the WOSC is right for you!

2016 WOSC Dates:

July 16 - Henry County

July 30 - Breathitt County

August 13 - Caldwell County

Regional planning committees are currently working on the detailed agendas for each of the programs. If you have suggestions for subject matter you think we should cover at the WOSC please send them to Billy Thomas at billy.thomas@uky.edu as soon as possible.  Brochures and registration for the 2016 WOSC will be available in early April.
