You're invited to a free Texas Watershed Steward Workshop focusing on water quality issues related to Austin and the Colorado River. The training is open to anyone interested in improving water quality in the Austin area and will be held from 8am-4pm, October 11 at the LCRA Redbud Center at 3601 Lake Austin Blvd. in Austin, TX.

This workshop is sponsored by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board as part of the Texas Watershed Steward Program in order to educate local residents about the hazards of impaired water quality and inform them of the current state of water bodies in the area. The workshop will also highlight ongoing efforts to address water quality in the Colorado River and its tributaries.
The training will include a discussion of watershed systems, types and sources of water pollution, and ways to improve and protect water quality. There also will be a group discussion on community-driven watershed protection and management.
We are also offering continuing education credit through this training for TDA pesticide license holders and professional engineers as well as certified planners, teachers, crop advisors, landscape architects, and nutrient managers.
