Forest Stewardship Coached Planning
WSU Extension Forestry's flagship class will teach you how to assess your trees, avoid insect and disease problems, attract wildlife, and take practical steps to keep your forest on track to provide enjoyment and even income for years to come. In this class you will develop your own Forest Stewardship Plan, which brings state recognition as a Stewardship Forest and eligibility for cost-share assistance, and may also qualify you for significant property tax reductions.
WICD Mission Statement
The Whidbey Island Conservation District serves present and future residents of Whidbey Island by supporting a healthy environment, and promoting voluntary, incentive-based options for conserving natural resources through educational outreach as well as technical and financial assistance.
