Description/Notes: 

The 2013 Maryland Woodland Stewards workshop will take place May 2-5 at Shepherd's Spring Retreat Center in Sharpstown, MD, and nominations for this year's class of Stewards are now being accepted. The immersive 3.5 day workshop offers training in woodland and wildlife management and stewardship, as well as skill building in leadership, outreach, and education. Top-level speakers from across the state will present talks in their area of expertise.
The cost for the entire training, including room and board, is only $95. Support from the Tree Farm System and the Maryland Forest Service allow us to offer this heavily subsidized price. In return, participants commit to giving back 40 hours of service in land management, education, and outreach in the year following their training.Ideal applicants will own or manage wooded land, or work with educational programs that reach out to landowners. Volunteer experience is beneficial.
