Maryland Woodland Stewardship Education


The Maryland Woodland Stewards Project is an educational program of the University of Maryland Extension.  This program has been in existence for over twenty years.  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.”

The Woodland Stewardship Education (WSE) program helps connect woodland property owners to their land. Through a variety of Extension offerings such as trainings, seminars, publications and resources, WSE provides access to professionals from such fields as forestry, wildlife ecology, and natural resource management.  Access to this information enables woodland property owners to make sound and informed decisions about managing their land.
