A highlight of the program will be a talk by Jim David, retired superintendent of the Ocmulgee National Monument, who will chronicle the recent successful endeavor of getting the site designated as the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historic Park, which spotlights "17 millennia of continuous human habitation." Then we'll get "Back to Basics with Trees," with talks on "Proper Planting, Proper Pruning, and What Doesn't Work." ISA Arborist and Landscape Architect CEUs will be available. 2.50 SAF Forester CFE hours. Lunch is included.  The Georgia Sports Hall of Fame is located at 301 Cherry Street, Macon, GA  31201.
