Washington Agriculture and Forestry’s AgForestry Leadership Program awards fellowships to 24 people each year from throughout Washington state.

Over a course of 18 months, 12 seminars are held across the state at public and private institutions of higher education and leading Washington businesses on various topics including government, economics, international trade, communication, water issues, media relations, the criminal justice system and the environment.

Each seminar is three days, typically Wednesday through Friday. In addition the program includes two study travel seminars, including a two-week seminar in a selected foreign country and a seven-day seminar in Washington, D.C.

“I had the honor of going through Class 20 of the Agriculture and Forestry Leadership program and I use the skills and connections from this program daily in my life, farm and career, said Karen Bishop, Whidbey Island Conservation District Manager and local farmer.

“If you intend to work in a natural resource industry, you should consider applying for this upcoming class,” she aid.

Applications are due April 30. See www.agforestry.org for information.
