“Forests Food for Wildlife: Enhancing Mast Production” will be held Friday, Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Knox County Health Department, 11660 Upper Gilchrist Road, Mount Vernon. The day-long workshop will be focused on the identification and enhancement of mast-producing trees, those whose nuts, berries and seeds serve as an important food source to many species of forest wildlife. There will be a discussion of a variety of mast-producing species and their different nutritional values, and a focus on management strategies that will improve mast production and attract wildlife.
