Multi County New Land Owners
Next Program will be on August 21, 2015 in Washington County!
The Multi-County New Landowner Educational Series will resume on August 21, 2015 after taking a summer break for the months of June and July. The sixth seminar in the series will focus on Weed and Brush Control for the South Central Texas area. We invite all program series participants and anyone interested in learning more about weed and brush control to join us for a great afternoon of learning. Dr. Megan Clayton, Assistant Professor and Extension Range Specialist, will be our feature speaker and will provide an abundance of practical resources for landowners to utilize in managing their property.
We will meet at the Washington County Fairgrounds in the VIP Building located at 1305 E Blue Bell Road in Brenham, Texas. From Blue Bell Road turn north on Old Independence Road and enter through the 1st gate on the left (West).
If you have a weed or brush sample you would like identified please bring a sample along with you. Ideally the sample will be freshly collected just prior to the meeting and needs to have leaves and flowers if possible/applicable.
