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.
