Landscaping topics and speakers
Dotty Woodson, Ph.D., retired AgriLife Extension water resources specialist, will talk about water conservation landscaping through efficient irrigation, rainwater harvesting and plant selection. She also will offer tips for a drought-tolerant landscape.
Allison Strube, San Angelo water utilities director, will discuss the San Angelo municipal water supply and the Concho River Project.
“Despite recent rains, the majority of Tom Green County is still abnormally dry,” Watkins said. “You can never take rain for granted in West Texas, and this seminar offers people an opportunity to learn to work with the weather we experience out here and landscape accordingly.”
