Small Acreage – Big Opportunity Returning in 2022

Since 2020, the Small Acreage – Big Opportunity (SABO) program has supported landowners of small properties in their efforts to manage for native Texas species. SABO, which is co-hosted by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Texas Wildlife Association, is maintaining that momentum with 3 sessions scheduled this year in different parts of the state.

This year’s first SABO will be held on Saturday, May 21st in Bandera County, followed later by session 2 on Friday, September 23rd in Brown County, and wrap up with session 3 on Friday, October 28th in Wharton County. There are several topics that are covered in all SABO sessions, including the basics of wildlife tax valuation, an introduction to “reading the landscape” to inform management decisions, and an opportunity to hear from a panel of local natural resource professionals. Additional topics will be tailored to the location of each session, addressing concerns that are relevant to that area.

Each session is a day-long program, beginning around 8 AM and wrapping up by 4 PM. The day consists of a mixture of classroom lessons and activities in the morning, followed by a field outing in the afternoon which offers opportunities to see first-hand the results of management actions, practice plant identification, and network with local landowners who are putting theory into practice, and more. Coffee, snacks, and lunch are provided.

The cost to participate is $80—please register early as space is limited! Registration for the May session in Bandera County is now live at https://texaswildlifeassociation.salsalabs.org/sabobandera, or you can contact Amanda Gobeli (agobeli@texas-wildlife.org or 720-333-6224) for more information.
