This course is designed for woodlot owners who own 10+ acres of woodland and are interested in learning about different options they have to actively manage their property (to protect what they value about the property, and/or make improvements to their woodlot).  The class will meet on the following Tuesday nights from 6 to 8pm at Hillgrove Community Hall, located on Route 1A (red building with name on it, east side of Main Street).  From the intersection of Route 1 and Route 1A in Jonesboro, heading northeast on Route 1A the Hillgrove Community Hall is located 3.75 miles up Route 1A on the right.
