NH SFI Implementation Committee (NHSIC) supports numerous New Hampshire landowner workshops annually. Although geared to landowners, these workshops are open to anyone wanting to attend and generally attract a diverse audience. This is by design as the NHSIC believes the more quality education delivered to those who own, manage and have an interest in the state’s forest the better. And because many of these programs attract community officials and organizations that own land (i.e. town forests) these workshops help satisfy the SFI principle of broadening the practice of sustainable forestry on all lands through community involvement. See Current landowner training classes.
