The Keystone Project is an intensive, 3-day retreat style training program focusing on forest and wildlife conservation. The Keystone curriculum includes indoor and outdoor sessions on forest ecology and management, wildlife management, forest health, land conservation, and landowner outreach. For more than 30 years, Keystone has educated forest owners and local leaders who have a significant impact on their communities. Keystone Cooperators can own forestland, be involved in the care and stewardship of a property or be an active community leader. In return, participants agree to return to their community as an advocate for forest conservation. Learn more about Keystone.
This fall, the Keystone Project is partnering with the Women on the Land (WOTL) network to host an all-women Keystone training. Learn more about WOTL. The WOTL Keystone training will take place on Thursday evening, October 26, through Sunday afternoon, October 29 at the Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA. Room and board is provided.
We are seeking women and gender minority applicants for this training. Keystone is a competitive program. Space is limited to 25 women. Applications will be reviewed for applicant experience, connectedness within the community, special skills, and diversity. Applications are due September 22nd.
