As part of Alabama Public Television’s ongoing “Spotlight on Agriculture” documentary series, the network is producing three episodes focused on Auburn University’s School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences research and the importance of forestry, wildlife and natural resources to the state’s economy and quality of life.

The episodes will air on APT during the first three quarters of 2019, with the first episode on “Forestry” scheduled to air Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. CST. During the “Forestry” episode, viewers will learn how Auburn’s research is improving timber harvesting and forestry operations, developing sustainable products from forest biomass and discovering solutions to today’s most critical challenges facing wildlife and natural landscapes such as drought, habitat loss, pests and invasive species.

To celebrate the launch of the series trilogy, the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences will host a public screening and reception for the premiere of the “Forestry” episode. The campus-wide screening will be held on Feb.13 at 3:30 p.m. at the SFWS Building, located at 602 Duncan Drive, in Room 1101 Conference Hall. The event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available on the third and fourth levels of the South Quad Parking Deck.
