Peters said the ForestHER Workshop is open to all women who are interested in forest as landowners, as future owners.

“Women sometimes become landowners through inheritance so the ForestHER Workshop could be of benefit to them as well as to women who could potentially become landowners through inheritance. The workshop is available for women who are just interested in knowing more about Pike County’s forestland.”

Those who attend the ForestHer Workshop are encouraged to wear closed-toe shoes because the workshop will be outside. A notebook for any notes might be helpful.
