Land conservation easement workshop Nov. 3 in Floresville

The Texas Agricultural Land Trust (TALT), in cooperation with Green Spaces Alliance, San Antonio River Authority and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Wilson County, will present a conservation easement workshop Nov. 3 in Floresville. 

The workshop, “Protect, Conserve, Pass Down: A Strategy for Saving Family Lands,” will be held from 9 am.–1:30 p.m. at the Floresville Event Center at 600 Highway 97 West.

“The workshop will focus on topics of interest to Wilson County landowners, including mitigating the impact of oil and gas production and of feral hogs, land trends in Wilson County, and the use of conservation easements as an estate tax and income tax planning tool,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension Service agent for agriculture and natural resources, Wilson County.

He said other program items will include an introduction to conservation easements, a landowner panel discussion, a National Park Service update and optional tour of Rancho de las Cabras.

Cost is $15 per person, and lunch is included. For more information and to register, contact Davis at 830.393.7357 or by-davis@tamu.edu.
