Free, 3-day seminar to teach forestry, wildlife management principles


Woodland owners and others are invited to apply for training with the Maryland Cooperative Extension Service and Ruffled Grouse Society as "Coverts Cooperators."

The free, three-day seminar in September focuses on general forestry and wildlife management principles. In return for the training, reference materials and follow-up seminars, the trainees will develop a management plan for their woodland, and they will commit a year during which they are to share information with neighbors and their communities.

Applications are due by the end of this month The project is named after "coverts" -- thickets that provide shelter for wildlife.
