It’s Your Legacy: Planning for the Future of Your Land

  • Thursday, February 21, 2019, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

A Workshop on Legacy Planning to Keep Forests as Forests

Few challenges faced by landowners are more important than the issue of passing their land and its responsibilities on to the next generation. Many landowners want to conserve their woods but don’t know about conservation options and how to involve family members in the future ownership and operation of their lands. On Thursday, February 21 at 1pm, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County will be hosting It's Your Legacy: A Workshop on Legacy Planning to Keep Forests as Forests at the NYS Fairgrounds, Art and Home Center, Somerset Room. Kristina Ferrare, Forestry Program Specialist with CCE Onondaga, will help participants by connecting them with legacy outreach resources to help landowners consider the future of their forests. Kimberley Rothman, attorney with Bousquet Holstein, PLLC, will present on the legal aspects of estate planning tools and options.

This workshop will be held in the Somerset Room in the Arts and Home Building at the NYS Fairgrounds as part of the NYFOA Woodlot Seminar Series during the NYS Farm Show.

This research was funded by a grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

Cornell Cooperative Extension is an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities and provides equal program and employment opportunities.
