WORKING YOUR WOODS
TO CREATE YOUNG FOREST HABITATS
"Take the training - you will never think about wildlife the same again!"

We are pleased to offer a workshop opportunity to forest landowners in Rhode Island to learn about and help create
much needed wildlife habitats on their property by becoming a Coverts Cooperator. We are seeking applicants to participate
in the 2017 Coverts Training Workshop. This project is made possible with funding from USDA-NRCS, RI DEM, and URI.
The RI Coverts Project is a training program designed to help forest landowners manage their land for young forest habitat
using sound forest management practices that can help restore wildlife populations. Coverts or thickets are patches
of young forest or shrublands created for wildlife though forest management. This annual event has trained over a hundred
landowners from across the state through its two and one-half day workshop that focuses on forest and wildlife
management practices that benefit species needing young forest habitats and shrub thickets.

Registration fee is $50.00 per person
