Learn the value of our woodlands

WARRENSBURG Dont degrade the economic or environmental value of your woods. Forest owners and practitioners can learn specific strategies to obtain benefits from forested property without reducing its long-term value. A discussion of these strategies will be available on Dec. 19 via the Cornell University ForestConnect Internet Seminar Series. The ForestConnect Internet Seminar Series is an interactive web conference and was the first of its kind in the US. Each seminar uses the internet to distribute, or webcast, a live and interactive presentation. Since May, webcasts have connected forest owners, managers, and practitioners from throughout the United States and overseas. More than 300 owners and managers from 40 states and three countries are registered and receiving announcements for the monthly webcasts. Seminars occur on the third Wednesday of each month. Each webcast is provided live, twice. The initial broadcast each month is from noon to 1 p.m. with a repeat live broadcast the same day at 7 p.m. Participation is as easy as a high-speed internet connection via a web browser. Participants will connect to a secure Cornell Cooperative Extension server to join the presentation. Participants must pre-register once, without charge, at ForestConnect.info. Email notification of internet URL details will be sent to everyone registered. The eighth webcast in the series is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 19 on the topic Dont Degrade Your Woodlot.
