We welcome forest landowners, natural resources professionals, and others to join us for a virtual workshop in wildlife forestry practices in bottomland hardwood forests of the Southeast. We’ll cover topics such as bottomland hardwood management, hydrology and water issues, timber stand improvement, and how to manage your forestland to improve wildlife habitat.
Bottomland hardwood forests are critically important to biodiversity, wildlife, carbon storage, recreation, and clean water in the southeastern United States. Unfortunately, bottomland hardwood forests are threatened by several factors. Wildlife forestry management practices can benefit these ecosystems and the communities that depend upon them.
Join us in learning from two experts on how to manage bottomland hardwood forests of the Southeast using wildlife forestry practices!
Dr. Lockhart has always been passionate about hardwood silviculture, particularly in bottomland hardwoods. He has been a professor at both the School of Forest Resources at University of Arkansas and the School of Renewable Resources at Louisiana State University. Most recently, he was a research forester for 16 years at the Center for Bottomland Hardwood Research in Stoneville, Mississippi.
Mr. Duck Locascio received a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Forest Management from Louisiana State University and a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Wildlife Management from Louisiana State University. He has managed forest resources on LDWF WMAs within the Mississippi Alluvial Valley for the last 23 years and currently serves as Program Manager of the LDWF Forestry Section supervising all forest management activities on State-owned Wildlife Management Areas.
