Mississippi’s Lower Delta Partnership (LDP) is hosting two workshops that will detail managing land for waterfowl. LDP is partnering with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP), Ducks Unlimited (DU), US Fish and Wildlife Service, and Mississippi State Extension Service to present the workshops. Wildlife biologist from DU, MDWFP, and NRCS will do presentations that will give the truths on what ducks are eating while they are here wintering, how weather affects their diet, and what types of habitats they use and why. They will also give presentations on managing different wetland types to provide waterfowl food and habitat needs. Emphasis will be placed on proper management to maximize wetland habitats.
The same workshop will be held in Cleveland at the Bolivar County Extension Office on Tuesday, November 7th and at the Rolling Fork Community Center on Wednesday, November 8th. The workshops will begin at 9AM and last until 2PM, lunch will be provided. These workshops are open to the public and free to attend, but attendees must preregister at www.lowerdelta.org/workshops or call 662-873-6261 for more information.
