On June 16, 2020 the Environmental Professioals Network (EPN) hosted a webinar in partnership with Central State University, Hocking Soil and Water Conservation District, Holden Forests and Gardens, and ODNR Division of Forestry on Women Owning Woodlands: Networks for inclusive land stewardship.
Women are woodland stewards around the globe. They participate in stewardship on their own property, within their local community, or on shared public lands. When looking at woodland owners, researchers find that similar proportions of women and men hope to inherit their family forestland, yet fewer women than men have been involved in management of the family forest . In the US, women tend to outlive men, with a life expectancy of an additional five years on average.
