The April meeting of the Winston County Natural Resources Council will be held at 9:00 a.m., on Thursday, April 17, at the
U. S. Forest Service Office in Double Springs. We will have a brief meeting (15 minutes or so) and then will head out to visit some longleaf and shortleaf regeneration sites on the Bankhead. These will be sites where stands have been successfully planted in recent years. The purpose of these stops will be to see how these species are grown in this area, and how they might perform on private forestland. We will carpool to the sites in Black Pond and Moreland and will return by lunchtime.
