Teacher Conservation Workshop

My wife, Felicia, recently spoke to a group of teachers at Auburn University.  She spoke about private forestland owners and how their forest management benefits all of us.  She shared how our forest help clean the air and most all the drinking water in our state comes down in a forest.  Felicia also shared how we use our property to educate others and how she has sponsored women's events to get more ladies involved in managing their property.   
This was the Teachers Conservation Workshop sponsored by Alabama Forestry Association.

Hot Summertime Weather

Planted chufa in this field for the wild turkeys.  They love the tubers these plants produce.

This is one of our largest fields where we plan sunn hemp for a summer planting.  This crop will be a high protein food available for the lactating does by the end of July as the fawns start to drop.

The first we planted has germinated and it just needs some of those summer showers.
