Hands-on Chainsaw Safety Workshop for Women coming to Dover-Foxcroft

The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) takes pride in offering in-demand programs. In recent years, the demand for forestry workshops has greatly increased and we have seen each program we offer fill to capacity. Additionally, we have listened to our constituent’s requests for more hands-on programs, and answered by provided unique learning opportunities and chances for participants to hone useful skills. For our latest forestry workshop, we are partnering with the Penobscot County Soil and Water Conservation District to offer something special and very much in-demand, a Chainsaw Safety for Women Workshop on Friday, April 27th in Dover-Foxcroft.

Many of us own woodland. Do you utilize this land? If not, would you like to? With all the recent wind storms, perhaps you would like to learn chainsaw skills to take care of downed trees on your property, or clear deadwood in preparation for another storm. Perhaps you would like to start harvesting your own firewood. Whatever the reason, learning chainsaw skills can be hugely beneficial, yet the thought of operating a chainsaw can be overwhelming and intimidating. Many women don’t know where to begin when approaching the idea of using one for at-home purposes. This Chainsaw Safety for Women Workshop is designed to demonstrate and comfortably introduce the concepts of working with a chainsaw to women of all experience levels. What’s even better, participants will learn alongside two fantastic presenters and a small group of women.
