Becoming an Outdoors Woman
performs a variety of conservation education
duties as the
Alabama Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries Division's Conservation Outreach
Specialist. She is greatly aware of the importance of hunting and fishing as
much more than just fun sports or pastimes--they are critical for
conservation efforts as well. To encourage Alabamians to partake in these
activities, the state's Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries Division hosts
multiple programs each year to provide hands-on instruction on all sorts of
outdoor activities in a fun and safe environment. One particular program,
Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW), is a three-day workshop specifically
designed to equip females with the information and training they need to get
in on the outdoor action. Marianne will share information on the BOW program
and others like it and why they contribute to wildlife conservation.

Cellular Trail Cameras - Rural Property Security
Mark Olis is
the Content Marketing Manager for
cellular game cameras. Moultrie Mobile cellular game cameras utilize Verizon
or AT&T cellular service to transmit trail camera images from the field to
the Moultrie Mobile app on your smartphone. While these cameras have proven
great for monitoring game on hunting land, they can also benefit landowners
for other uses, such as security cameras. Mark will share what makes
Moultrie Mobile cameras a good fit for landowners to remotely monitor their
property and share tips on how to get the most out of their use.

The Alabama Feral Swine Control Program
is a Regional Extension Agent for the
Alabama Cooperative Extension System(ACES). Many landowners across Alabama are facing issues with feral
swine, also commonly known as wild boars or wild pigs. Feral swine can cause
a wide range of problems for landowners, including damage to agricultural
crops, food plots, pastures, and other natural resources. According to ACES,
feral swine cause upwards of $55 million of agricultural damage each
year in Alabama alone. To help combat this growing problem, the
and Water Conservation Committee launched a program to help landowners
remove feral swine from their property. Bence will explain what
landowners need to know about the
Feral Swine Control Program, how it benefits landowners, how to know if
you qualify, and how to apply.

Timber Market Update
Billy Rye is
owner and president of
Forest Management Specialists, Inc. (FMS), which has assisted more
than 600 landowners in five states with managing their objectives and
marketing timber. On July 28, FMS released its latest
Market Update, which covered how the combination of a low supply of raw
materials at the mill and an increased demand for finished forest products
have led to higher stumpage prices for landowners. Billy will share
more details about what's going on in the market and how it affects
landowners across the South.
