Description/Notes: 

The Maryland Woodland Stewards program teaches enthusiastic individuals how to be good stewards of natural land, and good advocates for forest and wildlife stewardship in their community.

The Maryland Woodland Stewards Project (formerly the Coverts Project) is an educational program of University of Maryland Extension.  It teaches forest and wildlife management practices and leadership skills to a select group of people each year.  In return, participants apply these principles to property they own or manage, and actively encourage others to practice good forest stewardship using the principle of “Neighbor Helping Neighbor.”

Through classroom sessions, Maryland Woodland Stewards learn about:

  • Maryland forests and how they grow
  • Wildlife and habitat
  • Sound forest stewardship to improve the health and productivity of their woodlands while increasing wildlife habitat, diversity, and abundance
  • The natural resources professionals and organizations that provide information and other assistance to help manage their properties Classroom learning is reinforced with outdoor sessions that demonstrate how these principles can be applied to individual woodlands.

Classroom learning is reinforced with outdoor sessions that demonstrate how these principles can be applied to individual woodlands.
