NRCS and NWTF Host Field Day to Help Improve Wildlife HabitatFri, 10 Aug 2012 09:59:24 CDT
Landowners can learn how to address land, water, and wildlife resource concerns and improve habitat on their property by attending a Texas-Oklahoma NRCS Outreach Workshop on Aug. 22 at the Southern Oklahoma Technology Center, 2610 Sam Noble Parkway in Ardmore, Okla.
This workshop will provide landowners with information about the use of USDA conservation planning assistance and programs to address land, water and wildlife resource concerns. The workshop is $10, begins at 8:30 a.m. and continues until 3:15 p.m., with lunch provided. Pre-registration is encouraged.
“The National Wild Turkey Federation received a grant to host a number of these workshops across the nation,” said Gene Miller, NWTF regional biologist. “The southern Oklahoma and northern Texas region was selected as a key location.”
Resource specialists from the NRCS, NWTF, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, Oklahoma Forestry Services, Texas Parks and Wildlife, the Oaks & Prairies Joint Venture, Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M University and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will be on hand to describe complimentary services and programs available to landowners on a voluntary basis.
“The day promises to be a ‘who’s who’ of regional experts, including practicing landowners who have been invited to participate,” Miller said.
Registration fee is $10, which includes lunch. For more information or to register, click here or contact Tracy Cumbie at (580) 224-6292
