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 2016 Coverts Training Workshop. This project is made possible with funding from USDA-NRCS.

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.

Date:  May 6 & 7, 2016 (full days)
Location: Camp Canonicus, Exeter, RI

May 11, 2016 (evening session) (optional)
URI, Kingston, RI
