The AACD Forestry and Wildlife Subcommittee will host a Wildlife Management Seminar for landowners and land management professionals on August 22-23, 2013. Topics include forest management, white-tailed deer management, feral hog control, and much more.
Thursday is in the classroom and Friday will be a tour of longleaf pine sites on Fort Rucker. This will be an excellent training opportunity for NRCS employees and will count 12 CEU’s toward Certified Planner recertification and 2 CEU’s toward Prescribed Burning training requirements.
For the agenda, go to the Soil and Water Conservation Committee calendar website scroll down to “Wildlife School for Landowners.” Employees are welcome to share the flyer with interested landowners.
NRCS employees may attend upon approval from their supervisor and if they have this technical training need listed in their FY13 IDP. There is limited space available and landowners are the target audience, but this will be an excellent opportunity for NRCS employees to get some practical training on wildlife and forest management.
The State Office will cover the $50 registration cost of approved employees if their names are submitted by COB, Friday, August 9th. Employees on travel status claiming per diem should subtract the following meals: Thursday lunch and dinner, and Friday breakfast.
Each Administrative Team/State Office Supervisor should their list of approved employees to Stacey Riggins by COB, Friday, August 9th.
