Biochar in the Woods Workshop 

Learn how to make and use biochar in the woods, for the woods.

What: A combination of live, online and in-field presentations and demonstrations on making and using biochar on site in the forest and WUI (Wildland Urban Interface). 

Why: Given the ongoing drought and dangerous wildfire conditions in California and throughout the west, we see an urgent need to train more people on how to convert problem forest vegetation into biochar onsite for climate and ecological benefits.

Who Should Attend: Forestry contractors, arborists, workforce supervisors, forest land owners, homeowners in the WUI, and staff from environmental NGOs and natural resource agencies who may be supervising forestry workers, or developing biochar forestry projects and programs. 

Partners: US Biochar Initiative, US Forest Service, Butte Community College, Butte Fire Safe Council
