Enterprises based on the natural resources available on farm and other private lands, such as fee-access hunting and fishing, agritourism, and wildlife watching, can provide opportunities for supplementing and diversifying income. Workshops featuring a combination of presentations and field tours were implemented throughout the southern U.S. to educate landowners on the benefits, considerations, and management of these enterprises. Participants were surveyed regarding workshop quality and future land management activities. Most landowners reported that the information gained at these events would increase revenues collected on their properties and that they expect to modify their current land use practices as a result.
