Growers, landscapers, and the Trinity Water Basin

The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will be co-hosting water quality and land management workshops for the Trinity River basin area in early September, according to a release from TAMU.

Because of Texas’ explosive population growth, more pressures are going to be put on the natural resources and those of us who consider ourselves stewards of the environment. What really moved me was that these workshops are being co-hosted by a private landowners group, Trinity Waters. When landowners, academic experts, land managers, and businesses come together, there is truly a chance that we can plan for a sustainable future and use our water and land resources wisely, keeping the ecosystem functioning.

This workshop is free and is about more than saving the birds—it offers CEUs and talks about good watershed management practices. Also check out the Trinity River Authority of Texas for more resources.

Does water from the Trinity River Basin affect your growing operation? What are you doing to manage and sustain your business? Let us know, we’d love to hear what your strategies are.
