Have some extra time to explore your backyard woods? The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program is hosting the Backyard Woods Course free of charge for participants from May 1-June 30, 2020.

A course for Vermont homeowners interested in caring for their woods!

• Do you own less than 25 acres?
• Are you interested in learning more about your woods? 
• Do you want to become a more active steward of your woods?
• Then you may be interested in the Backyard Woods Program! 


The Vermont Backyard Woods program is an online course that is designed for homeowners with less than 25 acres who want to learn more about the woods in their backyard: what’s in it, who (wildlife) uses it, and how they can become better caretakers of it. This is an introductory level course, designed to give homeowners basic skills and connect them to resources available.

We will be unable to provide an in-person walk at this time, but drop-in webinar sessions with experts will be scheduled. Times TBD.

This is a self-paced course and you will have access to the content from May 1st to June 30th, 2020.

Take this opportunity to explore your woods with your family!
