These materials were compiled in collaboration with the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, the LSU AgCenter and with support from the Southern Risk Management Education Center.
The purpose of this workshop series was to educate forest landowners, loggers, and foresters in Arkansas and Louisiana about alternative uses to their property such as agritourism and hunting. As with any new use of property, there will be challenges and risks that will arise and dealing with these risks before they become a problem is critical for long-term viability.
The materials for the workshops has been provided below. The materials include recorded workshop sessions as well as the written supplementary materials that were provided to each participant.
