The trapping workshop is scheduled for June 13, 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Ocmulgee Public Fishing Area near Cochran. At this workshop, staff from the Wildlife Resources Division and members of the Georgia Trappers Association will provide instruction on trapping coyotes, beaver, raccoons and opossums.
This workshop is limited to 40 people and interested participants are required to register in advance. The minimum age for an attendee is age 12. A participation fee of $35 (payable only by VISA or MasterCard) is required of all participants and includes lunch.
