AG & OUTDOORS BRIEFS

Water webinars offered starting Thursday

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Trinity Waters will be hosting the first of three webinars on Thursday, July 11, from noon-1 p.m.

Discussions will include the history and current status of water quality issues in the Trinity River, watershed protection strategies and how to build partnerships to promote the message that rural land stewardship practices can improve the quality and quantity of water for the roughly 40-45 percent of Texans that rely on the Trinity River to meet their water needs.

All the webinars center on the importance of proper land stewardship and water conservation to ensure future water for rural and urban areas that depend on the Trinity River.

The webinars, all scheduled from noon-1 p.m., are:

• Treasuring the Trinity: Challenges and Opportunities, July 11.

• Turning Your Land into a Sponge, Aug. 8.

• Meeting the Water Needs for Texans and Wildlife, Sept. 12.

To access the webinar, go to the Forestry Webinar Portal and select the webinar title under Upcoming Webinars. Be sure to go to the website a couple days prior to make sure you have the latest version of Java and that your computer is compatible.
