Applications Open for Educational Retreat for Women Forest Landowners



Upper Delaware River Region, PA and NY – Women across the mid-Atlantic region who own, care for, or are interested in learning more about forestland are invited to apply now to attend the Women and Their Woods (WaTW) Educational Retreat from September 6-9th, 2018 at the Highlights Workshop Facility in Boyd’s Mill, Milanville, Pennsylvania.

The biennial retreat is an in-depth, fun, engaging, and thought-provoking workshop on caring for your woodlands now and into the future. No matter the size of your woodlands or if you’re not yet an owner, join us for learning, networking, and applying new knowledge about good forest stewardship. Workshops are led by professionals including Penn State’s Center for Private Forests, cooperative extension, state and federal forest agencies, in addition to local land trusts, private consultants and legal experts. Attendees gain information on forest stewardship and legacy planning while learning the basics about mentoring other women landowners.

Topics and activities in indoor and outdoor sessions include forest ecology, wildlife habitat improvements, estate and financial planning, measuring the value in your forest, forest plant identification, and more.

The event this year will be held at the Highlights Workshop Facility which provides a spectacular 1300-acre wooded campus complete with historic buildings, streams and hiking trails, comfortable lodging accommodations and five-star meals.

According to Christine Foland, PA Landowner and WaTW Retreat Graduate, “It is hard for me to believe how differently I view my woods after our four days together. In addition to loving my woods, I feel a strong responsibility to care for it in a purposeful way. The network of support available is wonderful. I am embarked on a new, beautiful, and heretofore unexpected relationship with my forest.”

For more information on Women and Their Woods or for an application to attend the Retreat, visit www.DelawareHighlands.org/watw, email Amanda Subjin of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at amanda@delawarehighlands.org, or call 570-226-3164 ext. 2. The cost to attend the four‐day retreat is $300 and covers lodging for the three nights, three meals per day with snacks, and all workshop resources and materials. The application deadline is August 1, 2018.
