Texas AgriLife Extension Service experts in Edwards and Val Verde counties will conduct a Texas Wildlife and Range Workshop from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. July 16 at the Dink Wardlaw Ag Complex in Del Rio.
“With brush control being important to both livestock producers and wildlife managers, this program is sure to be highly educational for all types of landowners,” said Sam Silvers, Texas AgriLife Extension agent in Edwards County.
The workshop’s featured speakers will be Dr. Alyson McDonald, Texas AgriLife Extension range specialist at Fort Stockton; Dr. Dale Rollins, Texas AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist at San Angelo; and Tommy Haegelin with the Chaparrosa Ranch at Brackettville. Presentation topics include brush control, impact on water cycles, brush sculpting and identifying key woody plant species.
Continuing education units through the Texas Department of Agriculture will be offered for those with a valid private applicators license: 2.5 in General and 2 in Integrated Pest Management.
Registration is $10, payable at the door, and includes a catered lunch. RSVP by July 10 by contacting Silvers at (830) 683-4310, (830) 234-7021 or email@example.com.
