Volunteers who complete the 4-day workshop will join the corps of over 200 certified volunteers across the state. September 7-10, 2016 at Cornell University’s Arnot Teaching and Research Forest, VanEtten, NY (south of Ithaca in Schuyler County.

Volunteers can commute daily or free accommodations are available. There is a $125.00 fee ($200.00 per couple) that helps defray lodging, publications, food, and equipment costs of the 4-day training. 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.
