Land Stewardship Workshop

Lee County workshop helps new landowners learn how to better manage their property

LINCOLN, Texas - You fell in love with the rustic beauty and tranquility of the land. You felt at home amongst the rolling hills, vast prairies and forests.

And so you purchased your own little piece of the Lone Star State right here in Central Texas so that you could forever enjoy it. But do you know how to maintain it?

The Lee County Land Stewardship Workshop is designed to help you learn how to better manage your land. The Workshop is a free, five-hour program presented by the Central Texas Conservation Partnership, a consortium of local, state and federal natural resource agencies.

Want to take better care of your trees, keep them free of disease and maintain them during long, hot, dry spells? Trying to boost the water quality in your ponds and streams? Interested in feral hog control? Hope to learn more about property tax options? Looking for information about water rights? This workshop can help with all of that - and more.

Scheduled for 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, July 8, 2011, This workshop is specifically geared to newer landowners who have purchased between 20 and 1,000 acres within the last decade. The goal is to help those landowners become good stewards of their land and water resources.

“The workshop will provide these new landowners with practical information so that they can make informed land management decisions that will help them achieve their goals while also conserving the area’s natural resources,” said Daniel Lewis, Texas Forest Service forester and Workshop coordinator.
