Description: These classes are designed for the farmers who need to take the private pesticide applicator test in order to purchase restricted use products. However, we will be discussing chemical safety and sprayer calibration at this class, so anyone who sprays pesticides on a large scale will benefit from this training even if a restricted pesticide license is not needed. If you would like to attend any of these classes call the Extension Office of the County you want to attend and make your reservation as seating is limited in some locations. A fee of $20 will be charged for this training and testing. An additional licensing fee of $25 will be sent to the Department of Agriculture and Industries by the applicant. The licensing fee is not included in the training and testing fee. Please plan to pay with a check (checks are preferred) made out the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) in the amount of $20 or with the correct cash amount.

Description: The Barbour County Extension Office is happy to announce that we are trying to start a Wildlife Habitat Education Program for our youth in the county. This program is recognized at the state and national level. It teaches our youth about plant and animal identification, land management, conservation, and much more. Our team plans to get a group together this winter and develop a team to take to the state competition in this summer. Teams are comprised of four youth that are selected from the group that will study throughout the spring in preparation for the contest. Forestry and wildlife is a huge part of the economy here in Barbour County. We see this as an outlet for our youth to learn about the industry and the different careers within this area. Please share this information with your students and parents. We hope to have a good group to introduce at the state competition this year!
