The Woodland Advisor Program is an educational program for private forest landowners. In 2003, changes were made to the program allowing landowners to register for any or all of the 10 core classes or electives rather than commit to three or four weekend sessions. Some of the most popular topics include invasive species, property and income taxes, GPS, trail
design, tree identification and non-timber forest products. Over 75 local landowner workshops were held through this program in 2008. Program graduates complete 10 core and
five elective classes to become Woodland Advisor Volunteers. These volunteers help their neighbors learn about options and opportunities for their forestland. A concept map of the Woodland Advisor Program will be used to show the networks created as a result of this program. The key elements of the program include strategic planning, tactical planning, curriculum development, marketing, budgeting, external relations, class offerings, volunteer management and evaluation. The Woodland Advisor Program is a partnership between University of Minnesota Extension, Minnesota Forestry Association, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and Soil and Water Conservation Districts and other local partners.
