The workshop includes field trips, lectures and slide presentations in the study of forest types found in eastern Kentucky, along with music, storytelling and a presentation by Tavia Cathcart Brown, executive director of the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

Meals from Wednesday dinner through Sunday lunch, four nights lodging in dormitory or cottagestyle housing are included.
