Registration deadline May 2

KENEDY -- Landowners in the Lower San Antonio River Watershed in Karnes, Wilson, DeWitt, and Goliad counties are invited to attend a field day that highlights how Water Quality Management Plans are helping to implement the Lower San Antonio River Total Maximum Daily Load Project and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service Gulf of Mexico Initiative by improving water quality in the watershed. The field day will be held Wednesday, May 9, at the VFW Post 9189 in Runge and on a nearby property that is currently covered under a water quality management plan. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. The field day should begin at 9 a.m. and conclude around 1 p.m. with lunch being provided by the San Antonio River Authority.

The specific focus of this field day is to give landowners an opportunity to see examples of best management practices local producers have implemented within the Lower San Antonio River watershed to protect water quality.

Field day speakers will cover different management practices such as range, pasture, pest, and nutrient management. Water quality, managing quail habitat, feral hog management, and trapping techniques will also be discussed.

In addition to the useful information provided and the opportunity to see conservation on the ground, meeting participants will earn three continuing education units.

To ensure that lunch is adequately planned, RSVP by Thursday, May 2, to Harvey Kahlden with the Karnes County Soil and Water Conservation District at 830-583-3224, ext. 3, or J.D. Folbre with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service at 830-780-3906.
