The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Centers of Gates, Chowan, and Perquimans Counties will offer a workshop for forest landowners on February 11th, 6:00 – 8:00pm at Merchant’s Millpond Visitors Center (176 Millpond Rd) in Gatesville.

A sponsored meal will be provided, followed by presentations on forest health and wildlife management.

Kelly Oten, with the NC Forest Service, will update landowners on forest insect and disease problems causing significant issues in eastern NC. Some of the main problems landowners should be aware of include gypsy moth, forest tent caterpillar, laurel wilt disease, and emerald ash borer.

Chris Turner, with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, will discuss how landowners can make the wildlife connection by managing agricultural and forest land to meet the year-round habitat requirements of various wildlife species. Prior planning, based on wildlife objectives, will be emphasized.
