Spring Fling


The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences will host the third annual Spring Fling on April 18, 2015 at Crooked Oaks Farm in Notasulga, Alabama.  This nationally renowned farm, owned by legendary coach Pat Dye, is the site of Quail Hollow Gardens, a beautiful Japanese maple farm, and the Crooked Oaks hunting lodge. All proceeds raised from the event will go toward scholarships and program support in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences.

The evening's entertainment will include fabulous silent and live auctions conducted by Coach Dye, demonstrations by Auburn University’s Raptor Center, live music and dancing, tours of Coach Dye’s home and Quail Hollow Gardens, and exhibitors offering a variety of products and services relating to work and leisure in the outdoors.  Vendors include businesses specializing in hunting, conservation, research and education, horticulture, outdoor recreation, and more.
