Black Belt exposes Montevallo students to outdoor Alabama occupations

The University of Montevallo President’s Outdoor Scholars Program continues to thrive in its second year. Recently, the students took a trip just south of Montgomery to Hope Hull to visit Gusto, a hunting preserve and cattle farm.

While visiting, students heard from Ted DeVos, a wildlife biologist and forester, regarding what it took to return the Gusto land to its original state while creating a wildlife habitat. The students learned about native and warm-season grasses, and visited a longleaf pine stand to hear about a successful prescribed burn.
