SAN ANTONIO -- Jared Beaver is serving in the newly created position of program coordinator for water and natural resources for Bexar County, effective Oct. 1. He works from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in San Antonio.

The new position is a joint appointment of AgriLife Extension, the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources/Texas Water Research Institute, and Bexar County, officials said.

“A primary focus of the new position is to promote water conservation in Bexar County,” said Dr. Roel Lopez, director of the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources/Texas Water Research Institute in San Antonio. “The potential water savings through urban water conservation efforts is tremendous. A critical function of this position is to work with partners like San Antonio Water System San Antonio River Authority in collectively promoting urban water conservation efforts.”

Lopez said Beaver will work to promote a collaborative partnership with these entities and other key stakeholders throughout Bexar County.

“Jared is knowledgeable of the issues related to water and natural resources in the region, and we anticipate his educational programs to have an immediate impact,” added Marvin Ensor, AgriLife Extension regional program director for agriculture and natural resources, San Angelo. “His experience, love of nature, and interest in wildlife management will benefit Bexar County residents as programs are developed to address issues in the urban-rural interface.”

Beaver attended Wake Forest University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences in 2008.

“In South America, I traveled to the Amazon rain forest of Peru to assist with various ecological research projects at Cocha Cashu Biological Station located in Manu National Park,” he said. “In Africa, I served as team leader for water conservation and agricultural enrichment in rural Zambia, where we helped educate village leaders and local agricultural schools in water conservation, including establishing tower gardens designed to utilize gray water.”

Upon his return to the United States, Beaver attended the University of Tennessee, where he earned his master’s degree in wildlife and fisheries sciences in 2011. In August 2011, he accepted a graduate research assistantship to pursue his doctorate at Texas A&M University in College Station.
