Landowners and hunting clubs eager to earn extra income while improving land management for wildlife are invited to attend a Natural Resource Enterprises Business Workshop on Feb. 26 in Greenville.

"Landowners and farmers can seek new and innovative ways to earn extra money," said Daryl Jones, director of the Natural Resource Enterprises program at Mississippi State University. "These workshops are designed for landowners interested in learning about developing enterprises from the natural resources on their property or simply learning more about wildlife and business management."

Attendees will learn about marketing, ways to reduce liability, recreational enterprise potential, available cost-share programs, management for waterfowl and other natural resources, and nuisance wildlife, such as wild hogs.

The workshop will be at the Catfish Point Hunting Club in Greenville. Registration is $25 per person or $30 per couple, which includes lunch and reference materials.
