Master Forest Owner Volunteer Program Training
1:00 AM - 1:00 AM

Wednesday, September 24 – Saturday, September 27, 2014

Cornell University’s Arnot Teaching and Research Forest

Van Etten, NY (south of Ithaca in Schuyler County) 

Woodlot owners need other woodlot owners. Cornell Cooperative Extension is looking for a few good

forest owner volunteers to meet and work with their neighbors. The NY Master Forest Owner Program is

entering its 23rd  year and is looking to fill up its new volunteer training workshop. Volunteers who

complete the 4?day workshop will join the corps of 199 certified volunteers across the state. 

Sept. 24 – 27, 2014 at Cornell University's Arnot Teaching and Research Forest, VanEtten, NY (south of Ithaca

in Schuyler Co.) 

Applications due by Aug. 29, 2014 

The workshop combines classroom and outdoor field experiences on a wide variety of subjects including; tree identification,

finding boundaries, forest ecology, wildlife and sawtimber management, communication techniques,

and a visit to a nearby sawmill.


The goal of the MFO Program is to provide private forest owners with the information and

encouragement necessary to manage their forests to enhance ownership satisfaction. MFOs do not

perform management activities nor give professional advice. Rather, they meet with other forest

owners to listen to their concerns and questions, and offer advice as to sources of assistance based on

their training and personal experience.

 Fee:  $125 fee that helps defray lodging, publications, food, and equipment costs of the 4?day training.  Volunteers can commute daily, or free accommodations are available. 

Registration and Information and an application are available at: or an information packet and application form can be mailed to you. Please send your name and address to: Diana Bryant, 214 Fernow Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, Phone: 607?255?2115, FAX: 607?255?0349, E?mail:
