WCSWA Partners – What Can We Do for You?

At October 23 WCSWA Meeting at the North Plains Fire Hall, we heard from representatives of three groups that offer help to forest land owners. First, we met Jessica Wells, the new District Conservationist for NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service, US Department of Agriculture). Many of us have used cost-sharing in the past from NRCS and Jessica informed us that there would be cost-sharing available for pre-commercial thinning, replanting from disaster and management plans. For more information call Jessica at the Hillsboro Office 503207-7949.

Master Woodland Managers Program:

Washington County has many small woodland owners who have qualified to become Master Woodland Managers under the OSU Extension MWM program. These MWM’s have received training in woodland management science and technology, and are available to serve as volunteer mentor/advisors to other woodland owners.

To receive the services of a MWM, contact Amy Grotta at 503-397-3462
