The Coffee County Soil & Water Conservation District and the Coffee County Forestry Advisory Committee recently hosted two Coffee County Forestry and Wildlife Field Days.
The first field day was held Tuesday, Oct. 26, and 127 fifth graders from Holly Hill attended. The second field day was held Thursday, Oct. 28, and 43 fifth graders from Kinston Elementary and 57 fifth graders from Rucker Boulevard Elementary attended that field day. Both events were held at National Security Recreation property in Elba.
Exhibits included a live snake exhibit along with live baby alligators, the Enviroscape watershed demo, Skins and Skulls, pine tree planting, benefits of prescribed burn, and All Things Need Space. The much-needed rain did not dampen spirits and the program continued with minor schedule changes. After the activities, everyone enjoyed grilled hamburgers and hotdogs provided by National Security Insurance Company.
In addition to those previously mentioned, this event was supported by the Bradley/Murphy Trust, the Alabama Forestry Commission, the Department of Wildlife and Fresh Fisheries, Alabama Cooperative Extension System, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Take-home goody bags were handed out by National Security and the Alabama Forestry Commission
