SEQUIM — Early registration is being accepted for a Family Forest Field Day in Sequim for owners and managers on the Olympic Peninsula.

The field day will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at 143 Sophie Road.

The fee for those who register by this Friday is $20 per person or $30 for a family of two or more.

After that date, the fee will be $30 per person or $40 per family.

An optional barbecue lunch — reservations also due by Aug. 12 — will cost $10 per person. Proceeds will benefit the local Boy Scout troop.

The field day will be out in the woods. It will be conducted by experts in forest management, wildlife habitat and other forest stewardship disciplines.

Exhibitors, demonstrations, classes and youth activities are planned throughout the day.

The field day is designed to prepare landowners to plan and execute management activities that meet their personal objectives, reduce risks and protect their financial investment.

Absentee landowners with property in the area are encouraged to attend.

Participants can choose from a variety of classes and activities taught by specialists in forest health, wildlife habitat, weed control, wildfire protection, timber and non-timber forest products, using global positioning systems, chain saw safety and maintenance, and forestland security and safety.
