Montana State University Extension in Gallatin County and Park County in conjunction with the Montana Department of Natural Resources will offer a workshop on landownership succession planning on Saturday, April 9, at Chico Hot Springs.

This workshop will follow “Ties to the Land-Your Family Forest Heritage: Planning for an Orderly Transition” coursework to focus on ways to maintain family ties to the land from generation to generation, building awareness of key challenges facing family businesses and motivating families to address those challenges. 

The workshop will combine presentations and practical exercises to help families develop techniques needed to address succession issues. Topics covered will also be relevant to professionals working with landowner families.

Participants will receive a copy of the “Ties to the Land” workbook, which is designed to help families continue to improve and direct their communications at home. 

The workshop cost is $35 for first family member, $10 per additional family member.  The fee includes lunch and one copy of the workbook. Additional copies will be available at the workshop and online.

Registration is payable by check or cash to Gallatin County MSU Extension by Friday, April 1.
