West Virginia. State University Extension Service to Host Silviculture Workshop Sept. 14
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension’s Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) team will hold an introduction to silviculture workshop at the Claudia L. Workman Wildlife Education Center on Thursday, Sept. 14, from 1-3 p.m.

This free two-part workshop is tailored to address all concerns and needs regarding the measurements and silvics of different native trees and provide a better understanding of optimizing natural resources. 
Participants will learn about the different silviculture techniques used to manage forests and the economic and ecological benefits of forest management. They will also be able to make a Biltmore stick, a tool used to help measure trees. 
This outdoor seminar is designed to be interactive and hands-on; participants should be prepared to do some light hiking to discuss different tree species and measurements.
