Texas Tech to Host Water Quality Training Event

Written by Sherrel Jones

The Llano River Field Station at the Texas Tech University Center at Junction will raise awareness about land stewardship and water quality with a one-day training event.

The event will focus on water quality regulation and monitoring, methods to improve water quality, and community-driven watershed protection and management. The event will begin at 8 a.m. April 29 at Packard Hall at the Junction campus.

Also, the training will provide the basic knowledge and tools needed to form a watershed action group, participate in and organize local watershed activities and become more involved in protecting and enhancing a community’s water resources.

All program participants will receive a free copy of the Texas Watershed Steward curriculum handbook, free prizes, gifts and a certificate of completion. In addition, the program will provide the following: 

  • Seven continuing education units (soil and water management) for certified crop advisers
  • Seven State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) continuing professional education credits for certified teachers
  • Seven certificate maintenance credits for certified planners
  • Three continuing education units for TDA pesticide license holders

Pre-registration is now open through April 22 and required for participation. For more information, please visit the Texas Watershed Steward Web site at http://tws.tamu.edu.
