The Alabama Extension ForestHER workshops are an opportunity for women landowners to learn about forest management topics that are important to them in a relaxed, fun setting.

How it Works

ForestHER Basics workshops are 2 days. Participants learn how to read maps and deeds, identify and measure forest trees, and manage their timber and non-timber forest products. These workshops are very “hands-on” with demonstrations, field tours, and opportunities to practice new skills. We also offer ForestHER introductory lunch and learn workshops, and one day ForestHER workshops on topics such as thinning, writing a management plan, wildlife management, and prescribed fire.

Who Should Attend?

While this program is designed especially for women who love the land and learning about the natural world, everyone is welcome. You do not have to own a lot of land to participate. If you have just a few acres, this workshop is for you, too!
