Presentation summary:
This interactive webinar will explore some of the common perceptions (both true and false) held by Pennsylvania's private forest landowners. Statements commonly made by landowners about their woods, wildlife, forest pests, and timber management will be used to facilitate sharing and learning. Using a "peer to peer" and "mediated" learning approach, the presenters will ask participants what they think about several statements presented to them. Participants will be encouraged to write in their responses and share personal thoughts and experiences during the webinar. The presenters, Sanford Smith, Natural Resources and Youth Extension Specialist, Penn State Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, and David Jackson, Forest Resources Educator, Penn State Extension, will then respond and share their own comments and knowledge. Questions and further discussion will be encouraged after each statement is covered.
