Puyallup Watershed Landowners: Would you be willing to participate in a focus group?

Volunteers will participate in an interesting conversation about why you own forested land and the benefits you get from it. We ask for a 2.5 hour time commitment, which includes a meal and a $45 Visa gift card.

We are looking for people who own at least 5 forested acres in the Puyallup Watershed or who expect to inherit or buy land in the near-future.

The focus groups are sponsored by the Forest Roundtable of the Puyallup Watershed Initiative. Results will help us understand what support landowners need to get the benefits they desire from their land.

Focus groups will be held in Puyallup or a nearby location on:

  • Saturday, March 5, from 12 to 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 23, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
