Opportunities for online rainwater harvesting course given

The Texas AgriLife Extension Service is offering three opportunities for small-acreage landholders to participate in an online course on rainwater collection for livestock and wildlife.

The four-lesson "Rainwater Harvesting for Livestock and Wildlife" course, which can be taken from anywhere there is reliable Internet access, is designed to be completed over a four-week period, according to Justin Mechell, the AgriLife Extension program specialist in College Station coordinating course offerings.

"Though we have made these four lessons to where they can be reasonably completed in the four-week time frame we have established, the course may be completed more quickly if desired," he said. "If a participant is planning on using a dial-up Internet connections, that's OK, but download times for course materials may be lengthy."

Course opportunities will be offered within the time frames of June 7-July 2, July 26-Aug. 20 and Sept. 13-Oct. 8. The course lessons can be taken and completed at any time within the selected registration period.

For more information, contact Mechell at 979-845-1395 or visit the Rainwater Harvesting website.
