Coast to host workshop for land, charter boat owners
BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. -- Landowners and charter boat owners who want to branch out and earn extra income are invited to attend a Natural Resource Enterprises (NRE) Business Workshop on Sept. 26 at the Longfellow Civic Center in Bay St. Louis.
“Landowners and charter boat operators can seek new and innovative ways to earn extra money,” said Daryl Jones, NRE program director at Mississippi State University. “These workshops are designed for landowners interested in learning about developing enterprises from the natural resources on their property or simply learning more about wildlife and business management.”
Attendees will learn about recreational enterprise potential, inshore fishing charter excursions, marketing and ways to reduce liability, hunting leases and wildlife management, and bird-watching, kayaking and paddling excursions.
Advance registration is required. Lunch will be provided. The Longfellow Civic Center is located at 122 Court St. in Bay St. Louis.
