'TRAPPING 101' WORKSHOP SET OCT. 31 AT WEHLE NATURE CENTER
MIDWAY, Ala. -- Farmers, ranchers and homeowners alike will learn how to trap for recreation or control animal damage to crops, residential areas or personal property during a one-day workshop at the Wehle Nature Center near Midway on Oct. 31, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sponsored by the Alabama Farmers Federation, the Alabama Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division, USDA Wildlife Services and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, "Trapping 101: For Animal Damage Control and Recreation" will address laws governing the removal of nuisance animals. It will also cover non-lethal methods of control, how to effectively set traps for specific animals and which traps to use.
Participants will learn to minimize animal damage, trap wild hogs, control beaver damage, establish sets for aquatic mammals, coyote, fox and bobcats and safely resolve animal damage problems in residential areas.
After two hours of indoor presentations, the program will move to the Barbour County Wildlife Management Area for in-the-field, hands-on training by professionals from USDA Wildlife Services and ALDCNR.
Cost for "Trapping 101: For Animal Damage Control and Recreation" is $20 per adult and free for children. Coffee, doughnuts, refreshments, BBQ lunch and a packet of publications are included with registration.
