On February 13th and 14th, a total of forty-five participants, including Texas Master Naturalists and the general public, attended the first annual Wildlife and Fisheries Specialist Academy. The workshop, presented by Dr. Todd Sink, Dr. John Tomecek and Dr. Maureen Frank, covered topics focused on Aquatic Vegetation and Wildlife Management over the 2 days of attendance. The event is designed to provide advanced training to volunteers who can then support or expand specific county educational programs of the Texas A&M AgriLife Wildlife and Fisheries Extension Unit.

Here’s what some of our attendees had to say about the event:
“So much information that was so darn interesting. The speakers were excellent and I enjoyed both days very much.”
“I liked the ability to learn and ask questions about Texas ecosystems – plants and animals.”
More Wildlife and Fisheries Specialist Academies will be held in the future. Keep an eye out for other training opportunities to come. Postings will be made on our website and on our social media platforms. https://wildlife.tamu.edu
You can also contact your local Extension agent to see if there are any trainings happening in your area. For contact information for your local County Extension Agent, visit the AgriLife People website at https://agrilifepeople.tamu.edu/.
We look forward to sharing more natural resource conservation workshops in the future.
