Using native plants for pipeline restoration workshop Sept. 24
A workshop on using native plants for pipeline restoration in the Eagle Ford shale region will be held Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 9 a.m. at the Dobie Ranch, located off C.R. 233 in Live Oak County.
The field day is a cooperative effort with the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, South Texas Natives, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, and the Live Oak Soil and Water Conservation District.
As pipelines for the Eagle Ford shale drilling continue to expand across Texas, restoration will be critical to ensure conservation of our natural resources and usable habitat for cattle and wildlife.
Topics to be covered:
•Native seed mix selection, procurement, and planting
•U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service ecological site descriptions
•Native seeding trial results from area rights of way
•Brush and weed management
•Grazing management after seeding
•Native plant identification.
Continuing education unit credits will be available with a $10 fee payable to Texas AgriLife Extension Service.
Registration deadline is Sunday, Sept. 22. For more information or to register, call 361-593-4037 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
