In 2010, they offered a webinar on non-timber forest products (NTFP) in Minnesota – a general overview of the region’s products and the range of motivations for their harvest. This year, they delve deeper into the topic by exploring NTFP management and utilization from the perspective of an actual forest landowner, focusing on specific products, their uses and motivations for use, and management. The webinar features the insights of landowner John Peterson of Delano, Minnesota.
The instructor is Dave Wilsey of UMN Extension. Dave’s teaching and research address forest-based livelihoods, with an emphasis on non-timber resources and tribal communities. He has studied non-timber forest product management and markets in the United States as well as Central and South America.
