Forests in the Puget Sound area are facing unprecedented challenges and increasing tree mortality. WSU Extension is presenting the 2022 Vashon Forest Owners Field Day to help you meet those challenges, restore healthy forest conditions, and achieve your goals for your property. The Field day will feature different outdoor workshops specifically for people with forested property on Vashon.
Learn about current forest health issues, drought and climate impacts, fire risk reduction, wildlife, and much more in an out-in-the-woods setting with local experts. See the below for more details. The Field Day will be followed by a bring-your-own picnic dinner, and then a Twilight Forest Tour hosted by King County Conservation District.
See the complete list of workshop topics below for more details. The Vashon Field Day will also feature exhibits by local agencies that assist owners of forested property.
