2017 COVERTS Training

We are pleased to offer a workshop opportunity to private forest landowners in Rhode Island to learn about and help create much needed wildlife habitats on their property by becoming a Coverts Cooperator.

The RI Coverts Project is an education program designed to help forest landowners promote the development of critical wildlife habitats using sound forest management practices that can make wildlife healthier, more diverse and abundant. Coverts or thickets are patches of young forest or shrublands created though forest management. The project has trained landowners from across the state through its two and one-half day workshop that focuses on forest ecology and stewardship, wildlife management and land conservation.

“Take the training – you will never think about wildlife the same again!”

Date: May 12 & 13, 2017 (full days) at Camp Canonicus, Richmond RI, and May 17, 2015 (optional evening session) at URI
