“We’ve had a wonderful spring with abundant moisture, but we know water conservation is still a must for those living in our part of Texas,” said Sam Silvers, AgriLife Extension agent in Kimble County. “The whole idea behind this two-county program is to not only raise awareness about water issues, but also offer ways to address them.”

The AgriLife Extension offices in Kimble and Menard counties are the conference hosts.

Individual registration is $25 due upon arrival. The fee includes lunch. For more information and to RSVP by July 8, contact Silvers at 325-446-2620 or Lisa Brown, AgriLife Extension agent in Menard County, at 325-396-4787.

Three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units – one integrated pest management and two general – will be offered.
