New York has a Master Forest Owner (MFO) program in addition to the Master Gardener program. MFOs are forest owners, not foresters. They are volunteers who can visit other forest owners to share information based on the owner’s objectives and interests. For more information, visit http://www2.dnr.cornell.edu/ext/mfo/
I have been a MFO for just over a year, and have enjoyed visiting eight woodlots in Allegany County. There is always something to learn.
