The Whidbey Island Conservation District and Meerkerk Gardens will hold a workshop on restorative forestry techniques for small forest owners that includes tips on managing a forest to preserve and enhance its beauty, health and function.

The free workshop is open to the public, and will focus on such topics as directional falling, selective harvesting and creating wildlife habitat.

Draftworks Horse Logging will be at the demonstration with a two-horse team to show selective cutting and low-impact horse drafting techniques.

The workshop is from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 at Meerkerk Gardens.
