Workshops help landowners profit from resources
STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Landowners and hunting clubs who want to branch out and earn extra income are encouraged to attend one of three upcoming Natural Resource Enterprises business workshops.
The workshops will be held Sept. 18 in Woodville, Sept. 27 in Natchez and Oct. 9 in Cleveland.
Natural Resource Enterprises is a research and outreach program of the Mississippi State University Extension Service, MSU Forest and Wildlife Research Center, Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Attendees will learn about recreational enterprise potential, wildlife habitat management, farm bill program options and legal liability considerations.
“Landowners and farmers can seek new and innovative ways to earn extra money,” said Daryl Jones, program director of Natural Resource Enterprises. “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.”
The workshop in Woodville will be at the Wilkinson County Parks Facility on 3200 U.S. Highway 61 North. The Natchez program will be on the property of James Berry at 22 Artman Road. The MSU Extension Office in Bolivar County at 406 North Martin Luther King Dr. will be the site of the Cleveland workshop.
Lunch will be provided, and preregistration is encouraged. For more information about the workshop or to register online visit Natural Resource Entreprises registration page (http://wildlifeworkshop.msstate.edu/register.asp).
The workshop in Cleveland is sponsored by MSU and the Mid Delta Forest, Woodland and Wildlife Association. MSU and the Natural Resources Conservation Service are sponsoring the programs in Woodville and Natchez.
