The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) will host a Texas watershed coordinator roundtable Jan. 31 in Waco for water and natural resource professionals.
The free event will be from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Texas Farm Bureau Conference and Training Center, 7410 Fish Pond Road.
Coordinators said the training is part of TWRI’s Texas Watershed Planning Program, designed for individuals interested in or responsible for watershed protection and restoration. The roundtable will include updates from representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board and Texas A&M Forest Service as well as presentations on watershed protection planning, implementation and outreach.
“These roundtables provide a forum for watershed coordinators where they can develop interactive solutions to common watershed issues faced throughout the state and receive program updates on a variety of issues,” said Nathan Glavy, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension program specialist for the institute.
A catered lunch is available for $10 or attendees may bring their own lunch. RSVP is required and participants may register online.
This program is managed by TWRI and is funded through a Clean Water Act Section 319(h) nonpoint source grant provided by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
