2018 Classroom in the Forest is in the books!  We host all the fifth graders in the county to our property each year learn the truth about the forest.  They get to see a real working, sustainable, multiple use forest and get to interact with nature where this would be impossible in the classroom. 
For more information about this program go to the Alabama Treasure Forest Association.

Farm Bill 2018

We met with Congressman Rogers yesterday to discuss the Farm Bill and its impact on Rural America here in Clay County.  It is so important to all rural people in ways we have not thought of.
We looked and talked about how the bill helps keep our water safe and pure; how it effects jobs in our community; and how wildlife habitat is protected.
