Women's 2-Day Chainsaw Safety Training

December 9, 2023 – December 10, 2023

Location: Madison, WI

Join Shelly Wollerman of North American Training Solutions (NATS) and Dane County Parks for a free two-day chainsaw safety class for women and gender minorities*, funded by a Fund for Women! In such a male-dominated field, it can often be hard for women, folks who are non-binary/transgender, and other gender minorities to feel comfortable learning about and using chainsaws. Dane County Parks is hosting these classes to create space for such folks that would benefit from this class environment and to build community in Dane County, particularly in the fields of ecological restoration, forestry, and other similar lines of work. (*This course is open to anyone who feels it is an appropriate space for them to learn in.)
