Education classes available to loggers
PASCAGOULA -- Professional loggers and anyone interested in logging have an opportunity to learn more about the industry through a Nov. 20 and 21 logger education program developed by Mississippi State University's Extension Service.
The two-day program consists of three classes. An introduction to sustainable forestry will begin at 8 a.m. on the first day, followed by a logger safety class at 2 p.m. A class on best management practices will begin at 8 a.m. on the second day. Classes will take place at the La Font Inn at 2703 Denny Ave. in Pascagoula.
Loggers and contractors are encouraged to contact companies they contract with to learn the company's attendance requirements. Each class costs $25 and counts for six credit hours in the Continuing Education for Professional Loggers program.
