Multi-County New Landowner Educational Series – Native Prairie Restoration

  • Friday, March 20, 2015
  • 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Colorado County

The third meeting of the Multi-County New Land Owners Education Program will be held on Friday, March 20, 2015 at the property of Jim Willis, 3295 FM 949, Cat Spring, TX 98733.  Directions and a map will be posted on the New Landowner Program website.  Registration will be from 1:00-1:30 and the program will run from 2:00-5:00pm. 

 

This meeting will discuss native prairie restoration and wildlife management.  Jim Willis will discuss his involvement in the Wildlife Habitat Federation, a group that provides technical expertise and restoration services to landowners in an effort to re-establish native upland wildlife and game habitat.   Mr. Willis will share his experiences in working with various landowners to restore native grasses, and the consequent restoration of wildlife habitat.  Also in attendance will be Mark Lange, Wildlife Biologist for Austin and Colorado Counties with Texas Parks and Wildlife.  He will discuss how native prairie restoration is a good fit for meeting the requirements of a wildlife-based tax valuation.

 

The afternoon program will be held outdoors, so it is advised that those planning to attend bring a lawn chair and wear comfortable clothing to fit the outdoor conditions on that day.  We will also be visiting a few other properties where restoration work has been done, and some transportation will be provided.  Three CEUs (2 General and 1 IPM) will be offered to all pesticide applicators in attendance.
