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.

We are seeking applicants to participate in the 8th Annual Coverts Training Workshop.

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 through
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!"
