FWC Press Release:
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and a host of partners are sponsoring a wildlife management workshop Oct. 22 at the Ebro Community Center.
The workshop will run from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. The Community Center is at State Roads 79 and 20, midway between Tallahassee and Pensacola.
Those who attend will receive the latest information on managing for bobwhite quail; doves, including what is legal and what is not on agricultural fields; whitetail deer, in addition to the latest on a study looking at rut dates across the Panhandle; how to deal with those pesky wild hogs and coyotes; and more.
One session will deal with how landowners can tap into cost-share programs to help them better manage their lands for wildlife.
In addition to the FWC, other sponsors of the daylong workshop are the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension Office, the National Wild Turkey Federation and Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Lunch will be provided free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Call the IFAS Extension Office in Chipley at 850-638-6180 by Monday, Oct. 19, to pre-register.
