Brush removal contractors and landowners interested in learning more about brush management are invited to attend a Land Stewardship Workshop for Texas Land Contractors in Lampasas.
Contractors or landowners conducting soil and water conservation / vegetation management operations for landowners to improve range, aesthetics, wildlife habitat, or facilitate mineral extraction can benefit from information on land stewardship. This information can enhance contractor’s profitability and landowner satisfaction.
Attendees will hear information about water resource protection, wildlife management, and invasive species. In addition, contractors will also learn about pipeline safety and financial incentive programs available to landowners that implement conservation practices. Participants will spend the morning in a classroom-style setting and travel to a nearby ranch for a field tour in the afternoon.
Three Continuing Education Credits for Texas Department of Agriculture non-commercial pesticide applicators license will be offered; one integrated pest managment, one license and regulations, and one general.
