The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will host a disaster recovery and preparation online seminar on April 28 from 8:30 a.m.-noon. The event is free, but participants are asked to register at http://bit.ly/FarWestTexas.
This is part of the quarterly Far West Texas Pasture Improvement seminar series, presented by the AgriLife Extension agents of Brewster, Culberson, Davis, Pecos, Loving, Presidio, Ward and Winkler counties.
“We have invited speakers to talk about preparing for drought and wildfires, and will also include a segment on wildlife management,” said Zach Schaefer, AgriLife Extension agent for Culberson County. “The AgriLife Extension agents in this region understand that the needs for our area are extremely unique. Considering all of the damage from Winter Storm Uri that occurred in February, the other agents and I thought a seminar geared towards disaster recovery and future disaster prevention seemed appropriate.”
