Forest Owner’s Field Days around the Corner
The Washington State University Extension reported that this summer, family forest landowners have two great opportunities: Washington State University Extension and DNR are co-sponsoring and hosting Forest Owner’s Field Days in eastern Washington on June 21 and in western Washington on July 26.
The Forest Owner’s Field Day shows attendees how to develop a management plan for their woodlands and conduct activities that will help them reduce risks while protecting their financial investment.

Fly-Ins and Farm Bill
In the May issue of The Reporter, Eric Carleson, executive director of the American Loggers Council, linked the Fly-In and the Farm Bill.
“ACL has been sending a delegation to Washington for many years, and in larger numbers in recent years. The ACL delegation is certainly part of the reason that something like the 2014 Farm Bill passed with votes from Republicans and Democrats alike, and was signed by the President.
Because the delegation is led by the president and vice president of Associated California Loggers, the delegation will ultimately have each of these officers travelling to the nation’s capital for a total of four years (two years as vice president, followed by two years as president). This means that your ACL delegation always has experienced members, and it also means that many of the people in Washington, D.C. with whom they meet, know and remember the ACL officers who come back every year for four years. The delegation also brings in some new participants every year or two (a new vice president, for instance), and the experienced number of delegates grows.
