Partnership Spotlight

Texas A&M AgriLife

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension has a long history of agricultural education, and has been a significant partner in delivering science-based resources to agricultural producers throughout TRWD watersheds. As the demographics of agricultural producers change, continued education is an important part of a sustained watershed protection program. The benefits of investments into new farming methods to enhance soil health have been seen by farmers and ranchers in TRWD’s watersheds.

Watershed Program

The TRWD watershed program strives to educate and inform local stakeholders and the public about their watershed, potential threats, and steps that can be taken to help improve and protect water quality.

“The mission of TRWD’s Watershed Program is to protect water supplies through responsible watershed planning and stewardship. Whether the audience includes school children or adults, urban dwellers or farmers, education is a cornerstone of water quality protection and essential for successful watershed planning.”\The program gives helpful information to students and educators as well as other stakeholders interested in learning about urban stormwater management, agricultural conservation practices and basic watershed concepts.

Agricultural Conservation Practices

TRWD encourages and supports responsible agriculture and good land stewardship by working closely with local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, state and federal entities, industries and nonprofit organizations.

Technical assistance, workshops, and demonstration projects help deliver information, resources, and new technology to agricultural producers throughout our watersheds.
