LITTLE ROCK – Keeping the forest in the family will be among the topics on the agenda for the Women Woodland Owners Workshop set for March 26 at the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with the program beginning at 9 a.m. Registration is $20 and includes lunch, breaks and materials. To register, contact Tamara Walkingstick, associate director, Arkansas Forest Resources Center, at 501-671-2346, or firstname.lastname@example.org; or Caroll Guffey, 501-672-2147 or email@example.com.
“We’re excited to have Allen and Ginny Nipper, the 2013 Arkansas Tree Farmers of the Year presenting information on how to conduct family meetings,” Walkingstick said. “The Nippers will be presenting information they’ve learned from their own intergenerational experience, and it’s all material nearly every family can identify with.”
The afternoon session includes a tour of Jane and Charles’ Purtle’s forest land near Prescott.
“We’ll learn about their management activities and their approach to handling the family legacy,” Walkingstick said. The Purtles are certified in the Arkansas Tree Farmer Program and the Forest Stewardship Council.
They were also recognized as Nevada County Farm Family of the Year in 2000 and have recently been featured in the Arkansas Agriculture Department on-line magazine: http://farmflavor.com/us-ag/arkansas/top-crops-arkansas/healthy-forests-arkansas/.
