Make it a point to check our calendar regularly as it updates with new Vermont Woodlands and partner sponsored events. There is no shortage of opportunity for woodland owners to learn about caring for their woods and to meet others who share their passions.
Continuing Education Units (CEU) Eligible Events
We support our consulting foresters with ongoing opportunities for Continuing Education credits.
Vermont Woodlands appreciates its licensed consulting foresters and natural resource professionals and strives to provide opportunities for learning and accruing education credits. We value your work and we know you value learning. Our relationship with Society of American Foresters has grown over the years and Vermont Woodlands is a recognized provider of educational programs. Since forester licensing we have also developed a good working relationship with the office of professional regulation that ensures our foresters get the credits they’ve earned. If you ever have questions about credits and program eligibility or if you are hosting a program that may be appropriate for CEUs, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email or call 802-747-7900 and speak to Kathleen.
Our programs may sometimes have a mixed audience so be sure to check for available credits when you see something advertised in our calendar of events. Also, we are always interested in hearing about what you’d like us to offer so please email or call to let us know how we can better serve you.
Walk in the Woods
Providing opportunities to explore the woods since 2007.
Walk in the Woods is a hallmark educational program launched by Vermont Woodlands in partnership with VT Dept. of Forests, Parks & Recreation in 2007. It began as a way to celebrate Vermont’s working landscape by taking a monthly excursion into our forests, county by county. Walks are meant to be fun and easy ways to see what your friends and neighbors are doing on their land. Each walk may have a special but not too technical theme or just be about meeting community members who share your love of the land.
While we may no longer offer a monthly Walk in the Woods in every county through the State, we do have regularly scheduled events. Check out our Calendar to see what’s coming soon in your neighborhood. Many of our Walks are hosted by Vermont Woodland’s members who are proud of their land stewardship and want to share it with you. If you’d like to host a Walk in the Woods, let us know. We’d love to work with you.
Want to learn without leaving the house, or even getting out of your jammies? Try webinars!
If you’re like most of us, you may just not have the time to attend a workshop. If work, family, or other obligations get in the way then webinars may be a perfect solution for you. We regularly post opportunities provided throughout the region for you to sign up and sign in for online learning. For most webinars, once you’ve signed up you can also receive the link to view later. This is great for those of you who can’t commit to live time. The only downside is that you don’t get to ask your questions.
There are several institutions and organizations that offer regular webinars. If you subscribe to the series, you’ll receive regular email updates about available programs and registration information.
- Forest Connect from Cornell University
- PA Forests Web Seminar Series from Penn State
- Questions about timber tax? Check the USDA Forest Service website for updates on timber and tax issues.
- You can find archived webinars at Our Vermont Woods and Woods, Wildlife, and Warblers
