Come see why Grazing Matters to soil health, habitat and wildlife.

San Antonio, Texas, May 15, 2019 – Texas is known for its cattle and wildlife.  Too often cattle production and wildlife management are thought to be conflicting goals for ranchers, hunters, and landowners.  There are a growing number of landowners who are interested in restorative grazing practices and soil health.  These practices, at scale, not only create sustainable grazing opportunities for livestock producers, but also ensure quality wildlife habitat, while also helping to support ecosystem services that all Texans depend upon, such as clean and abundant water, food, and fiber.

The Texas Wildlife Association will be hosting a Private Lands Summit on Thursday, July 11th at the J. W. Marriot Resort and Spa from 8:30am to 5:00pm.  Tickets can be purchased online and include a lunch and non-lunch option.

“As the face of Texas landowners and wildlife stewards change, we must not lose sight of the valuable role that livestock grazing plays in habitat management,” said David Yeates, Texas Wildlife Association CEO. “We are interested in bringing this conversation to all landowners whether they are producers, recreational landowners, hunters, or somewhere in between.”

Registration for the Private Lands Summit is open through June 30th, 2019.  Visit https://www.texas-wildlife.org/resources/events/wildlife-2019 to register.  Questions can be directed to Iliana A. Peña at ipena@texas-wildlife.org or (210) 826-2904.
