Learn how to care for trail tools and help keep the tool library in sharp shape! Join Southeast Land Trust's (SELT) trails manager, Yohann to learn how to maintain hand tools including sharpening, handle care, reconditioning tool heads and more. If you have a personal tool that could use some love you can bring that along and our experts can provide advice or suggestions on care. Help care for these important stewardship tools and learn how you can care for your own!

Women in the Woods is a collaboration between UNH Cooperative Extension, NH Timberland Owners Association, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and other partners aimed at connecting women forest landowners, managers, and stewards with the resources, skills, and community they need to make informed stewardship decisions that promote healthy forest resources. Women in the Woods programming is offered to marginalized genders including women, women-identifying individuals, and non-binary and gender non-conforming people who are comfortable in a space that centers the learning experiences of women. For more information about Women in the Woods and to sign up for the newsletter, click here. Funding for this program provided by a Landscape Scale Restoration Grant, U.S. Forest Service.
