HERMANN, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites landowners and others interested in managing woodlands for wildlife to a free workshop near Hermann on May 12.

This workshop will help landowners and wildlife managers make the most of their woods by covering different management strategies for woodlands, glades, and forests, timber stand improvement, prescribed burning, tree and plant identification, edge and old field management, and woodland food plots.

This workshop will be held outdoors in an actively managed woodland. It will take place 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Rottmann Farm, 1721 1st Creek Road southwest of Hermann. The workshop will involve some steep walking. Snacks and water will be provided.

“The Rottmanns have been working hard to manage their woodlands in accordance to their forest management plan,” said MDC Private Land Conservationist Seth Barrioz. “This workshop will showcase that hard work and allow attendees to see the benefits and impact that timber harvest, cedar harvest, and prescribed fire can provide.”

Space is limited for this free workshop and attendees must preregister by May 7 by calling Barrioz at (573) 897-3797, ext. 116.
