Peer Network

Be a part of an Involved Community of Woodland Owners

Hook into the MSOW Peer Mentor Network

In addition to the resources of MSOW partners, including the Oregon Department of Forestry, there is a wealth of forestry and fire preparedness knowledge among your fellow woodland landowners.  MSOW Peer Mentors are available to provide you with the information you need to reach your woodland management goals. They have a variety of expertise, from professional backgrounds in forestry and fire, to the experience that comes with caring for a woodland over generations.

By hooking into the MSOW Peer Mentor Network, you can get a no pressure visit from a fellow landowner serving as a Peer Mentor.  Peer Mentors are trained to help you, providing you with advice for whatever concern you have for your woodlands, and discussing possible solutions to whatever concern you have about your woodlands.

If you’d like a visit from an MSOW Peer Mentor please indicate on the form below.

 

I want to become an MSOW Peer Mentor

Do you have years of expertise managing your own woodlands?  Are you a woodland owner with a professional background managing forest land for health, fire resilience and/or wood products?  Do you enjoy discussing forest management strategies and helping out your fellow woodland owners?  You might be perfect as an MSOW Peer Mentor.

As a Peer Mentor, you will be trained and connected to woodland owners whose concerns match your expertise.  Thanks to your efforts, you will be helping to improve forest health and wildfire preparedness from a landscape level.  This is a volunteer position and you can specify the number of visits you would like to do.  Your travel is reimbursed.
