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 Educational Retreat from September 6-9th, 2018 at the Highlights Foundation Workshop Facility in 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 resource 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 and field trips include forest plant identification, forest ecology, wildlife habitat improvements, measuring the value in your forest, finding professional assistance, forest plant identification, estate and financial planning, and more.

The event this year will be held at the Highlights Foundation Workshop Facility. Cabins and lodge rooms have modern facilities and wireless internet access. Farm-style meals are prepared by a top-notch chef and are a time for lively discussion, while snacks are always available for late-night or early morning sessions. The intimate and inspiring setting features serene walking trails, a 1,300-acre forest, and a creek that runs to the nearby Delaware River.

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; this 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. Space is limited—submit your application today to secure your spot.

Women and Their Woods is sponsored by the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, the U.S. Forest Service at Grey Towers National Historic Site, the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences, and the William Penn Foundation.
