Lone Star Healthy Streams Workshop

The Lone Star Healthy Streams workshop will be held on July 29th at the Copperas Cove Independent School District Board Room, 703 W. Ave. D in Copperas Cove. The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. and end by 3 p.m. A catered lunch will be provided at no cost, but an RSVP is requested by July 27. 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. By participating in this workshop, livestock producers and landowners can learn specific conservation practices that can help combat bacteria pollution and improve and protect the quality of Texas water bodies, specifically the Lampasas River and its tributaries.

Three Texas Department of Agriculture general continuing education credits will be provided for certified pesticide applicators.
