Chris Demers and Dr. Michael Andreu, UF/IFAS School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences
The Forest Landowner Academy is the first of its kind to be offered by the UF/IFAS School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences (SFFGS), through the UF/IFAS Extension Online Learning catalog. Forest Landowners, and others in need of forest management education, are encouraged to enroll to connect with SFFGS forest management experts and receive quality core educational content on forestry and multiple-use stewardship concepts.
The seven course modules cover a variety of topics including:
Understanding your forest resources
Developing your management plan
Marketing forest products
Other forest enterprises such as pine straw and hunting leases
Planning for the future
Each module includes an assessment questionnaire where you can apply what you’ve learned to your land or situation and begin or continue planning and making contacts. In addition being better prepared and equipped to be good stewards of their forest resources, those completing the course will earn a University of Florida Certificate of Completion.
This course is relevant for Florida forest landowners and land managers, as well as those in the neighboring coastal plain regions of Georgia and Alabama. Participants will build on this course as they receive information and attend educational events offered by the Florida Land Steward Program and other partners in Florida and neighboring states.
