-- Longtime land managers as well as inexperienced landowners interested in managing Oklahoma land sustainably for wildlife, livestock or timber have until May 1 to register for a unique course in land management.
Oklahoma State University Natural Resource Ecology and Management Extension is offering a short course June 8, 15, 22 and 29 at the Oklahoma County Extension Office. Topics include wildlife management, grazing management, timber management and prescribed fire—all important land management tools, even for owners of smaller tracts of land.
The course will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Oklahoma County Extension Office, 930 N. Portland, Oklahoma City. The registration fee is $250. The wildlife management portion of the course showcases managing for quail, whitetail deer and wild turkeys and also includes sections about lease hunting and dealing with wildlife damage. The three other sections will showcase techniques for general land improvement and upkeep.
“This course will give landowners direct contact with natural resource professionals in the areas of range, forest, fire and wildlife ecology,” said Dwayne Elmore, Ph.D., Extension wildlife specialist for NREM at OSU. “Discussions will be applied and relevant to landowners regardless of the size or condition of the property, and useful for landowners who have recently acquired land and are not sure how to manage it.”
