Watershed planning short course set May 10-14 in Bandera

The Texas Water Resources Institute will be presenting a Texas Watershed Planning Short Course May 10-14 in Bandera. The course will be held at the Mayan Dude Ranch, 350 Mayan Ranch Rd., about 47 miles northwest of San Antonio.

“This is one of the few courses that builds upon the nine essential elements for watershed planning as identified by the Environmental Protection Agency,” said Kevin Wagner, an associate director at the institute and course leader. “The goal of the Texas Watershed Planning Short Course is to equip watershed coordinators and water professionals with the tools they need for effective watershed protection efforts.”

Upon completion, participants will receive continuing education units from the National Registry of Environmental Professionals. Course registration is $375 and does not include lodging and meals. A block of rooms at the Mayan Dude Ranch has been reserved at a special rate of $121 per night, which includes all meals as well as lodging. Reservations must be made by April 30 to receive this special rate, and participants should identify themselves as program attendees when making reservations.

A grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Environmental Protection Agency provides funding for the course.
