The Hardwood Restoration Workshop and Field Tour was held on Saturday, September 24th, 2011. It featured four experts in the field of hardwood restoration. The four panelists were Ben Prater, Associate Executive Director with Wild South; Dr. Luben Dimov, Assistant Professor at Alabama A&M University; Ed Loewenstein, Associate Professor at Auburn University; and Dr. Callie Schweitzer, Research Forester with the USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station. After brief presentations by each of the four panelists, the participants visited five hardwood restoration sites on the field tour. After the tour, the group met back at the Black Warrior Work Center for a question and answer session.
The Hardwood Restoration Workshop and Field Tour was organized by the Bankhead Liaison Panel in cooperation with the Bankhead National Forest staff.
