Forum set for April 1-2 in Uvalde

The 2011 Farm & Range Forum: Conserving Our Rural Heritage is set for Friday and Saturday, April 1-2, in Uvalde.

The Forum will focus on the issues facing rural and urban Texans. Shifting land use patterns and increasing populations are changing the landscape of Texas. Landowners must be able to earn a living from the land in order to sustain ownership. With proper management, they will continue to provide valuable habitat for hundreds of wildlife species and provide public-interest services like clean air, pure water, and carbon sequestration.

The forum is a project of the Bexar Audubon Society, Green Spaces Alliance of South Texas, the Hill Country Alliance, the Nueces River Authority, the San Antonio Conservation Society, the Texas Agricultural Land Trust, the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, the Texas Department of Agriculture, the Texas Wildlife Association, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The forum will kick-off Friday with a field trip to the Harris Ranch, a large working ranch west of Uvalde. Specialists will lead small groups in examination of recommended range management practices, riparian values and protection, and healthy rangeland plant diversity, as well as opportunities for income diversification.

Saturday’s program will be held at the Uvalde Adult Activity Center.

Con Mims, general manager of the Nueces River Authority, will be the keynote speaker at lunch.

As the regional population increases dramatically (projected to grow from 3.1 million to 4.3 million by 2030) and central Texas becomes more urbanized, the character of the land and the people are threatened with change. To sustain what people love and cherish as their rural heritage requires a strategy including dedicated land stewardship, protection of natural resources, and incentives to help landowners conserve open spaces and make a living on the land to sustain their ownership.

For information call, Courtney Hollimon at chollimon@texas-wildlife.org or 800-TEX-WILD (210-826-2904) or visit www.texas-wildlife.org, www.greenspacesalliance.org, or www.hillcountryalliance.org.
