How would you like to measure forestland to the nearest 1/10th acre?

How about measure the size of food plots, farm ponds, or streamside management zones?

Would you like to learn how to mark entrance gates, landing and beetle spots, or locate that lucky fishing or hunting spot?

You could also learn how to mark boundaries, roads and trails, or even record your favorite drive in the country.

If you would like to learn how to accomplish these tasks then you should make plans to attend the Global Positioning System (GPS) workshop that will be held in the Neshoba County Coliseum on Saturday, Aug. 23.

The Neshoba County Extension Service along with the Neshoba County Forestry Association will be conducting a Global Positioning System (GPS) workshop on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Neshoba County Coliseum.

Participants in the workshop will learn the basics of GPS and how to find and set waypoints, routs, and tracks.

These skills can help foresters, loggers, and other professionals, as well as hunters, fishermen, and forest landowners.

This workshop will be conducted half-indoors and half-outdoors with hands on training.

Registration will be $20 per person which covers registration fees, tuition, refreshments, a steak lunch and supplies.

Mr. Butch Bailey, MSU Extension Forestry Department, will be conduction this workshop.

You must preregister to attend this workshop because we can only accommodate 20 individuals for this workshop; so if you're interested in learning how to use the GPS units please register as soon as possible to reserve your place for this workshop.
