Land Stewardship Workshop for Women
Women of the Land is a land stewardship-training program designed specifically for women landowners, land managers, hunters, and wildlife enthusiasts. This workshop is designed to encourage women to become active land managers, develop and hone their management skills, and network with women of similar interests. The Texas Wildlife Association (TWA), in partnership with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and with support from the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, will host this event.
The 2013 Women of the Land workshop will be held at the Cedar Mountain Ranch near Scurry, Texas, April 18-19th. The cost is $200 for TWA members and $250 for non-members. The registration fee covers meals, lodging, and materials. Non-members will receive a one-year membership to the Texas Wildlife Association. Registration is limited to 30 participants. Priority will be given to first-time attendees.
Much of this workshop will be conducted in the field. Topics to be discussed include habitat, land use trends, soils and hydrology, plant identification, wildlife identification, water quality testing, income diversification, and riparian management. Instructors will be wildlife and natural resource professionals from the private sector, Texas Wildlife Association, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, and other organizations.
