USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia wants landowners looking for a little more information about feral swine management, to know there are currently three Feral Swine Workshops scheduled in March.

The first event is happening March 3 in Griffin from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University of Georgia County Cooperative Extension office. The second will take place March 19 in Waynesboro from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Burke County Office Park, with the third event scheduled for March 31 in Danielsville from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Professional Learning Center. All three events are free, but you must register to attend.

Various speakers will be on hand at each event to discuss topics, ranging from disease issues, water quality issues, control techniques, trapping and transporting, regulations and more.

To register for any of these Feral Swine Workshops, or to learn more go to the Georgia Association of Conservation Districts (GACD) website.
