Bibb County is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, including public and private forests, rolling pastures and the Cahaba River watershed. Most county residents depend on these resources for their livelihoods as well as recreation. The importance of using these resources wisely and conserving them is critical.
Regional Agent Andrew Baril works with Bibb County Extension staff to address individual client requests concerning ponds, wildlife plots, forests and other issues.
Programs include invasive plant and animal species education, wildlife and forestry education through school-based programs such as Bibb County Earth Day/Forestry Awareness Week Now (FAWN), and a workshop series developed with the Bibb County Natural Resources Planning Committee.
