Fourth Annual Winston County Natural Resources Field Day

The Fourth Annual Winston County Natural Resources Field Day was held recently at Randy and Linda Moody's and Lennith and Shelia Hill's Farm. In my view, the participation was excellent. Here's a listing of the type participants at the field day:

18  Instructors
21  Volunteers
11  Foresters receiving Continuing Education Units
45  Loggers receiving Professional Logging Manager
        (PLMs) points
30  Private landowners (not including loggers that are also private
1    Bloodhound

Total 125

Each logger received 6.0 PLM points and foresters received 4.0 continuing education credits.   Registration went smoothly, the tour guides kept everyone on track, the speakers did a good job, the weather cooperated, the food was excellent, and the helicopter was able to land.  Thanks to all the speakers and volunteers, the Bankhead National Forest staff, the Winston-Marion-Franklin AFC work group, the Winston County 4-H'ers, and all the WCNRC members who assisted on this team project. Here's some photo's from the event.
