The Backyard Woods Program is an online course targeted at teaching homeowners with 25 acres or less about their woods and how they can be caretakers of it! Whether you own 2 acres or 20 acres, this program will help you make the most out of the woods in your backyard!

Course Details

  • The online course starts Sept. 24 and runs through Nov. 3.
  • Participants will also be invited to an in-person Backyard Woods field walk (TBD).
  • This course is composed of 4 online sections. Each section has videos, webinars, and activities aimed at helping you develop a stewardship action plan with a project schedule.

Self-PacedThis online course is self-paced and all activities are to be completed on your own schedule during the course, with the exception of the live webinars and in-person walks.  The course schedule is intended to keep you on track to complete the course in 6 weeks. This flexibility allows you to complete all activities and watch videos when you have time each week. You can expect to spend 1.5-3 hours each week on the course.

Greetings - 

A note from the Fire Warden:

The state, in conjunction with myself and some local firefighters, will be conducting a four acre prescribed burn in Paul Stream just past Bullthroat late Wednesday morning and into early afternoon.  Wondering if you could get the word out via the Association website so people who see smoke in the area will know it is a controlled burn situation and not an actual emergency.  Would appreciate it.  Thanks.
