Land Management Workshop in Central Texas


The Texas Forest Service along with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and other agencies is putting on a landowner workshop concerning wildlife management and habitat management on Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at the new Jester County Annex building on Old Settlers Blvd in Round Rock, Texas. Topics include oak wilt, predator control, brush management, the wildlife tax valuation, pond construction, and prescribed burning.

The habitat workshop is geared towards new landowners that have between 20 and 1,000 acres, but it is open to everyone in the community that is interested in learning about sound habitat management. Everyone in Williamson County is invited to attend and learn about managing the native plants and animals found in our own backyards. Whether you are interested in birds or white-tailed deer, you are invited to come on out!

The wildlife and habitat issues discussed pertain primarily to rural landowners and not necessarily residential lots, though there will be a lot of great information to garner from all of the presenters that are experts in their fields. Persons interested in creating a wildlife management plan and/or attending this habitat management workshop should RSVP to Rob Grotty by contacting him at rgrotty@tfs.tamu.edu .
