Forest Stewardship and Connection

EEC Forest Stewardship is committed to offering collective learning through shared experience in land stewardship. If you are interested in being part of the learning on site, please email escocrain@gmail.com for more information.

Our land also hosts Women Owning Woodlands workshop meet ups once a month. To connect with us through this organization, join the mailing list for class updates.

In King County, our local forest stewardship program is very active. This site will also help people who do not already have land to steward, contribute to stewardship of other forests in the area.
