Cooperative Extension to offer course in forest management

The University of Maryland Cooperative Extension will offer a correspondence course in general forestry for landowners, farmers and others interested in learning to manage a wood lot for timber products, wildlife and forest health. Registration is being accepted now for the spring 2002 semester.

Participants can use their property, a friend's forest or nearby public lands for exercises in forest management and to develop a forest management plan. A notebook of lessons and supplemental readings will be provided.

The cost is $150. A certificate of completion will be awarded.
