The Upper Trinity Conservation Trust is partnering with the Cooke County and Denton County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension offices and the Dixon Water Foundation to host the North Texas Land Stewardship Workshop from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27. 

The workshop will be held at the Leo Ranch, 5190 County Road 398 in Decatur.

The workshop will focus on management practices that benefit landowners' land operations and local water quality.  Local experts will discuss rotational grazing practices, feral hog control techniques and provide an update on cost-share programs available through the Natural Resources Conservation Service. In addition, the basics and benefits of conservation easements will be discussed as a tool landowners can utilize to meet the goals of their land operation now and when passing the land down to the next generation.

The cost for the program is $10 and includes lunch. Continuing education units (laws and regulations) will be available to those with a pesticide applicator license.

To register for the workshop, contact Marty Morgan, Cooke County AgriLife Extension agent, at 940-668-5412 or via email at marty.morgan@ag.tamu.edu, or by visiting http://bit.ly/2x7n6Kl.
