Forest Stewardship Programs

UI Extension provides an annual series of workshops, field days and other educational activities titled “Strengthening Forest Stewardship Skills” offered at various locations and times.

Idaho Panhandle Extension Forestry Programs Canceled or Postponed through May 15, 2020

Due to the University of Idaho's COVID-19 policy on gatherings of 10 or more over the next eight weeks, speaker and participant travel limitations, and other concerns associated with COVID-19, we have cancelled or postponed all Panhandle Extension Forestry programs originally scheduled through May 15, 2020. At that time, we will reevaluate the situation and policies, and make any necessary decisions regarding classes scheduled after May 15. 

After things have settled down a bit, we will look at alternative reschedule dates for programs that were postponed — most likely this summer or next fall, depending on when speakers are available and COVID-19 status. After re-scheduling a date, we will hold the program again, if we have enough participants who still wish to attend. 

If you have already registered for a program originally scheduled during this time frame and would like a refund, please contact our office to make this request: 208-446-1692 or kootenai@uidaho.edu. Alternatively, you can stay registered for any program that we expect to offer at an alternative date.

Thank you for your patience as we all navigate the current reality. Remember that smiles are also contagious, and conversations have not been canceled. If there is anything we can do to serve you during this time, please let us know.
