Women Owning Woodlands Website

Hi all,

You might have noticed the drop-off in writing here. You can now find forest articles, updates for WOWnet events and work happening all over the country here: http://womenowningwoodlands.net

This new website is a collaborative, volunteer effort led by Extension agents and landowners just like you! So go ahead and browse some of our stories, and when you get inspired, join us by sharing your own.

Funding for website technical assistance provided by the US Forest Service and National Woodland Owners Association. Thank you!
