Woodland Wednesdays Resources

The Woodland Wednesday workshop series was started in 2020 to address topics related to woodland health and wildlife management in northeast Ohio. According to ODNR, Ohio has around 8 million acres of forested land, and private woodland owners hold over 80% of that land. 

The series is intended to help woodland owners manage those properties. Well-managed woodlands improve forest health, aesthetics, and wildlife habitat. It also provides soil stabilization, clean water, self-satisfaction, and a potential source of income.

Woodland Wednesdays are made possible through partnerships between Northeast Counties Farm Bureau (Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, and Trumbull counties), Soil and Water Conservation Districts (Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Trumbull, and Portage), USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, ODNR Division of Forestry, and Holden Arboretum.

Below are the resources from the Woodland Wednesday series that have been recorded and/or have resources to accompany the workshops.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
