Dovetail's Executive Director, Kathryn Fernholz, will be presenting on the topic of Forests & Forest Products. Webinar registration is free and continuing education credits are available.

 

This presentation will answer many questions about forests and forest products, such as: Where do our trees and forests grow? How have forests changed over time? What is the relationship between people and forests - now and in the past? How are forests managed - and are they being managed responsibly? Are our forests and forest products sustainable? Why is wood an environmentally-friendly choice?

With a consulting firm, her work included natural resource inventories, comprehensive planning, environmental impact assessments and the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
