Each year, Texas Wildlife Association welcomes the opportunity to showcase to its members, partners and guests a variety of natural resource and conservation presentations by agency, landowner, non-profit and university partners. This year’s line-up represents a diversity of topics focusing on wildlife, natural resource management, production agriculture, landowner liability and lease law, wild game cooking and conservation education. For 2020, presentations will be made available for viewing beginning Tuesday, July 7th! Visit our website and enjoy any or all of these presentations at your convenience. Don’t forget to share the experience by sending the 2020 Education Seminar Series link with others. TWA serves Texas wildlife and its habitat, while protecting property rights, hunting heritage, and the conservation efforts of those who value and steward wildlife resources. Please consider joining TWA and help us make a difference.
Conservation Efforts and Covid-19
Conservation efforts in Texas have coped with economic challenges before, but unlike any other downturn, the economic crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the cracks in our conservation funding model. From state park closures to major reductions in oil and gas revenues, the economic mechanisms that typically support state, federal and non-profit conservation programs are feeling the effects. Join TWA as we have a conversation with Texas Parks and Wildlife Departments Executive Director, Carter Smith, and Natural Resource Conservation Service State Resource Conservationist Kristy Oates about the Covid-19 pandemic. Both will address how the pandemic is impacting state and federal conservation funding and how agencies are mitigating the affect Covid-19 will have on their ability to continue their landowner engagement and other conservation work? Finally, we will ask both to share what Texas landowners and the greater conservation community can do to ensure that our state and federal programs get the support they need.
