Posted: Sep 19, 2022, 12:48 PM

A free Forestry Wildlife Field Day is scheduled for Friday, October 7 at Red Oak Lake, 1495 Potter Rd. near Haughton 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. Field day activities are sponsored by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Trailblazer RC&D.

On-site sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m., and 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.

Workshop presentations are provided free to the public by the partnership and support of Energy Transfer; Hunt Forest Products, LLC; Mudd & Holland Consulting Foresters, LLC; Weyerhaeuser; Allstate Land & Timber Co., Inc.; and the National Wild Turkey Federation.
