Forestry Wildlife Field Day set for Oct. 14

A free Forestry Wildlife Field Day is scheduled for Oct. 14 at 232 Brooks Road near Choudrant, Louisiana, to give forest landowners an opportunity to meet foresters, and learn about forest health, managing forestland for wildlife, harvesting, and more.  This workshop will offer something for everyone, whether they own a few acres or a few hundred acres of trees.  The field day is sponsored by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Trailblazer RC&D.    

On that date, on-site sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m.  Field day activities begin at 9 a.m.  Lunch will be provided, and the field day will conclude at 2 p.m.  

Please pre-register to attend the field day.  Registration and lunch are free of charge, but because lunch will be served, field day organizers need to know how many people will attend.  To pre-register or for more information on the field day, call or text (318) 237-8350 and leave your name and contact information plus the name/date of the event.
