Yearly Workshops

NOTE: DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THIS EVENT ORGANIZED BY THE BALTIMORE COUNTY FORESTRY BOARD, AS SCHEDULED IN 2020,  IS NOW POSTPONED UNTIL 2022. Each year in March, the Baltimore County Forestry Board invites environmental professionals and experts for a day of presentations and interactive lessons at Oregon Ridge Lodge. Attendees are given opportunities for discussions and visiting environmental displays and services. A modest fee pays for hourly workshops by experts, lunch, refreshments throughout the day, and a folder with useful reference materials, and door prizes. We are examining ways to update our registrations online.

Continuing Education Credits: Better yet, the workshops fulfill the criteria for the continuing education credits for arboriculture studies, licensed tree experts, American foresters, and Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists.

All proceeds from this event are used to sponsor two teens to the Natural Resources Career Camp (NRCC) each year in July and conservation and education programs, including tree plantings.
