Forestry Extension

The Forestry Extension program uses various forms of communication—including social media, webinars, popular and peer-reviewed publications, in-person visits, and workshops—to help educate stakeholders about forest health, invasive species and forest management in Washington.

This program, led by Dr. Molly Darr, is new to WSU NWREC. Our initial objectives and outreach will continue to be refined to meet on the needs of the stakeholders.
