A Small Acreage, Big Opportunity workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 29 at the Texas A&M University Education Center, 6200 Tres Lagos Blvd., McAllen.

The program is tailored to small-acreage landowners in South Texas and presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas Wildlife Association.

“Our goal is to reach landowners who don’t have the same resources we traditionally think of as being available to larger operations, such as their own brush-clearing equipment or lots of employees,” said Maureen Frank, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist based in Uvalde and a workshop coordinator.

The cost is $100 and includes lunch. Register athttps://www.texas-wildlife.org/resources/events/.

Topics will include brush and pasture management, soil health, creating pollinator and wildlife habitats, earning 1-d-1 wildlife tax valuation and cost-share opportunities.

Frank said other valuable aspects of the program will include the opportunity to speak to and learn from local biologists, AgriLife Extension county agents and other natural resource professionals.

“The program will also feature a small-acreage landowner who has been successful in wildlife management and will share his or her story of success,” Frank said.
