Instructor Contact Information

Hi everyone, and welcome to BF 150. I look forward to learning more about your woodland management ideas over the next 6 weeks. I started teaching this course in 2016, and have really enjoyed these three years of interaction with farmers from across the US. I'm sure this year will be the same positive experience.

While you have year-round indefinite access to this course, please know that I will only be active in the course for the 6 weeks each Fall when I offer the live webinars, and probably a week or two on either end of that time period. So I welcome you to spend time with the resources here anytime you want, but if you want to interact with your fellow learners, get questions answered, or get feedback on your work, I can only promise that while I'm actively involved in the online course from late September through early November.

As a general rule, I'm happy to respond to your general requests at any time. Requests about the course are best during the time that the course is active. Email is best to allow me to send links and respond at any hour. My cell number is below, and you're welcome to text me. Please save my email and phone number; you can contact me at any time in the future.
