Forestry 

Fish and Wildlife Management is designed to enable students to become knowledgeable of forestry and wood technology. Students develop skills for producing, managing, harvesting, marketing and securing forests for the future.

Fish and Wildlife Management provides students with the opportunity to become more knowledgeable about some of today's most valued, yet vulnerable, natural resources. Students develop an understanding of the important role these resources play in the ecosystem.

Students use tools associated with forestry and wood technology. Chainsaw Safety is a vital part of student training.

Students develop leadership skills, realize personal growth, and are prepared for career success through the knowledge gained and skills acquired in this course

Scholarships for students are available through Jefferson Davis Community College and Lurleen B. Wallace Community College (Andalusia) and are based on student performance.
