Snohomish County has more owners of small forest land than any other county in the state. A two-part workshop this month aims to help people choose succession plans for family farms and private forests.
A two-part succession planning workshop will be held 5-9 p.m. March 21 and 28 at the Qualco Energy Center, 18117 203rd St. SE, Monroe. The workshop will feature the award-winning "Ties to the Land" curriculum.
Guest speakers will include an attorney, a financial planner and a family who has gone through the process, and there will be plenty of opportunity for Q-and-A.
The workshop is hosted by Cascade Harvest Coalition, WSU Extension and the Snohomish Conservation District.
Cost is $40 per family and includes one set of materials and dinner for two people each night. Materials and dinners for additional family members can also be purchased.
Space is limited. Register at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/337717 or call Sarah Wilcox at 253-381-7651.
