Land Stewardship Workshop for Women
Wednesday, September 30, 2009 • Posted September 30, 2009

Women of the Land is a land stewardship training program designed specifically for women landowners, land managers, and wildlife enthusiasts. The program combines information on land management and skill-based outdoor recreation in a venue that encourages women to ask questions, improve outdoor skills, and network with women of similar interests. The Texas Wildlife Association, in partnership with Texas Parks & Wildlife and with support from the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, will host this event.

The 2009 Basic Women of the Land will be held at Camp Allen in Navasota, October 30 through November 1. This year’s program will focus on habitat management for a variety of wildlife species in the blackland prairie region of Texas but the information gained will be applicable statewide. Prairie management and the restoration of native grasslands will be major topics with attendees having the opportunity to tour some model properties where excellent management is being done.

Registration is limited to 40 so get your registration in ASAP.
