You are invited to attend our latest Live Webinar sponsored by: Arkansas Forestry Commission, NC Cooperative Extension, Southern Region Extension Forestry, Texas Agri Life Extension, U.S. Forest Service.

What will you learn?
Forestry Best Management Practices (BMPs) are techniques and practices used to minimize and prevent water quality problems associated with forest management activities. Typically, sediment is the primary pollutant of focus for forestry BMPs. This webinar provides legislative and policy background for forestry BMPs and applied research findings regarding the effectiveness of BMPs for reducing sediment from a variety of forest operational activities. Forest operational activities that will be discussed include preharvest planning, harvesting, haul roads, skid trails, decks, firelines, stream crossings, and SMZs. This webinar is designed to outline basic BMPs to persons not familiar with the general activities and to provide recent BMP research findings to practicing forestland managers. learn more here...
