The 2011 Farm & Range Forum will be held Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14-15, in Uvalde. The focus of this year’s forum is “Conserving Our Rural Heritage.”

Friday afternoon, the forum will kick off with a field trip to the Harris Ranch, where 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. After a steak dinner at the ranch, participants will enjoy a campfire conversation.

Saturday’s program will be held at Uvalde’s Southwest Texas Junior College. It includes a range of informative panels as diverse as public benefits of private lands, land fragmentation, ways to maximize the conservation values of rural lands, and an update on estate planning, and the Legislature. The afternoon session on “Water in the West” looks at new developments in groundwater science, water resource planning, rain enhancement, rivers in peril, and more.

Continuing education credits have been approved for Certified Private Applicator, Certified Professional in Range Land Management, and Master Naturalist.

For more information, contact Courtney Brittain at cbrittain@texas-wildlife.org or Helen Holdsworth at hholdsworth@texas-wildlife.org or call 1-800-TEX-WILD (800-839-9453).
