A Lone Star Healthy Streams Program (Agricultural Water Conservation) is planned for June 3 at the Mansfield Park Rec Center, 2886 Hwy 16 N in Bandera. This event is part of the Water Workshops that Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Bandera County River Authority and Groundwater District are partnering on. Additional program sponsors include Bandera Electric Cooperative Inc., the Rancher's and Landowners Association of Texas and Hill Country Alliance.
The Lone Star Healthy Streams program aims to educate Texas livestock producers and landowners on how to best protect Texas waterways from bacterial contamination associated with livestock production and feral hogs, said Matt Brown, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist in College Station.
The workshop will begin at 10 am and end by 3 pm. A catered lunch will be provided and three hours of CEU credit (2 general, 1 IPM) will offered to those with a pesticide applicators license. A highlight of this program will include a Riparian Health Field Visit with Sky Lewey, Public Education Associate with the Nueces River Authority.
Cost of the program is $15. To RSVP for the workshop, call 830-796-3938 or contact the Bandera County Extension Office at 830-796-7755.
