Description: Managing Oak Forests for Northern Bobwhite Quail
About the Webinar: The southeastern United States has millions of acres of oak dominated forests that have a closed canopy with limited herbaceous and shrub understory that northern bobwhite require. However, research has demonstrated that with adequate overstory thinning, and the use of frequent prescribed fire, these forests can support populations of Northern Bobwhite Quail, presenting perhaps the best opportunity for large-scale quail restoration in the region. Participants in the webinar will learn about managing oak forests and restoration efforts related to Northern Bobwhite Quail.

Description: Alternative Income Streams for Forest Landowners
May 30, 2019
9:00am - 3:30pm
Moore County Cooperative Extension
Carthage, NC

To Register:https://reporter.ncsu.edu/link/courseview?courseID=CNR-DFER-AIS&deptName=CNR

Workshop Fee: $20 (without CFE), $100 (with CFE)

Registration Deadline: May 23, 2019
Questions? Rajan Parajuli rparaju@ncsu.edu


About 60% of the total forestland in North Carolina is owned by non-industrial private forest landowners. While the forest sector is an economic engine in most of the rural regions, timber production is not the primary reason for owning forestland for the majority of family forest landowners. Forests offer several alternative income opportunities for landowners, which are often compatible with their primary objectives of owning forestland, and some of them can be achieved without or with little additional efforts. This workshop educates natural resource professionals and landowners about forest-based alternative income streams available to their region.


Who should attend: professional foresters, resource professionals, Extension agents, and landowners
