Missouri Woodland Steward is a natural resource education program that helps woodland owners feel competent and connected. Through evening workshops and Saturday field days, woodland owners learn the basic concepts of forest and wildlife management. Plus they have the opportunity to gain in-field, hands-on experience applying what they have learned. Join us and you will also become connected to natural resource professionals and to like-minded landowners in your area.

Contact Hank Stelzer if you would like a Missouri Woodland Steward workshop or field day to be held in your area. As soon as 10 people in a particular county have expressed interest, he will work with the local MU Extension Center to provide the training.
