Forestry Field Day is an annual event held at the Mabson Community Forest in Dale County. The annual event is attended by fifth grade students from Dale County Schools and Ozark City Schools.
Fifth graders attend sessions on prescribed burning and tree planting, a wildlife presentation, learning about the variety of wood products that are produced from trees and a session on animal scats and tracks. A poster contest is also part of the Forestry Field Day event.
The annual Forestry Field Day event is sponsored by Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Dale County Treasure Forest Planning Committee, City of Ozark, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Long FFA. Forestry Field Day brings together multiple agencies to provide a fun and educational day.
