Educational Programs and Workshops
Idaho’s family forest landowners have diverse goals for their property. One common goal is to be good stewards.
Our educational programs and workshops are designed to increase the knowledge base that Idaho’s forestland owners and managers use to plan and implement natural resource management activities.
Find educational programs that help forestland owners and managers strengthen forest stewardship skills. Learn how to become an Idaho Master Forest Steward. Locate events that offer continuing education and certification credits for:

Strengthening Forest Stewardship Skills events are designed to help family forest owners, and those who work with them, strengthen their forest stewardship skills. New programs and locations are offered yearly.

Check the Panhandle site for information about Idaho Master Forest Stewards.
The Logger Education to Advance Professionalism (LEAP) program is a nationally acclaimed Extension program. It began at the request of loggers who want to improve their skills, document and market their services and communicate more effectively with family forest owners and managers. Credits are available to participants to fulfill continuing education requirements of the Idaho Pro-Logger Program.
Please check back this fall for our 2017 LEAP event dates.
LEAP Update is an annual opportunity for loggers to build on LEAP with in-depth training on forestry topics identified each year by loggers and meet Idaho Pro-Logger BMP training requirements. The program is held in conjunction with Associated Logging Contractor’s (ALC) first aid training, to allow loggers to fulfill the Idaho Pro-Logger program annual continuing education requirement in one, 2-day session (the first aid training and LEAP Update together yield 12 credits of continuing education).
