On Thursday Sept. 5 participants will board a bus and tour forest management sites in Colleton County. The South Carolina Forestry Commission will join NRCS for the forestry tours. Landowners who have cutover land or open fields will learn about reforestation options, thinning forests to improve growth and forest health, and management practices that improve wildlife and recreation opportunities. Managing forestland for future income from timber production and pine straw will also be examined. The bus will load up at 8 a.m. at the NRCS Service Center,531 Robertson Blvd., Suite B, Walterboro. The estimated return time is 3 p.m. Dress for the field. Lunch is provided. The free workshop will provide landowners and land managers — or those interested in becoming landowners/land managers — important information about NRCS programs that can assist them in accomplishing their goals. RSVP is requested. Contact USDA NRCS by September 3 at (843) 549-1821, ext. 3, to register at no cost.
