Healthy Landscapes Short Course

This is a C & E activity from the Healthy Landscapes program to improve understanding of natural disturbance patterns.

Interest in using natural disturbance patterns to help guide forest and land management decision-making is growing rapidly. To meet this need, we have developed a curriculum that will provide a common foundation for understanding the conceptual underpinnings of a healthy landscapes approach.

The course will be offered online for free through the Woodlands Operations Learning Foundation (WOLF). There will also be a classroom-friendly package of materials for live instruction.
