Welcome to the Watershed Academy's module on forestry best management practices (BMPs) in watersheds. This module, along with similar modules on agriculture and urban management, is about controlling impacts from common land use activities that often affect watersheds, water quality, and the condition of aquatic ecosystems. After completing this module, you should be familiar with the steps commonly involved in planning and carrying out timber harvest and reforestation, and several of the basic ways to reduce or avoid impacts on water resources during these activities. Self-test questions appear at the end of the module's eight sections.
