Workshop Description

This workshop will feature the Lampasas River & Colorado River Watersheds and local efforts to improve water quality. Topics covered will include basic watershed function, water quality and specific best-management practices that can be voluntarily implemented to help minimize bacterial contamination originating from grazing livestock, wild pigs and pasture weed management. Participants will also learn about local resources for technical and financial assistance. The aim is to increase awareness, provide education materials to Texas producers and landowners, and encourage implementation.

Three Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education credits for pesticide applicators are available. Additionally, this class has been approved for 2 advanced training credits for Highland Lakes Master Naturalists.
