Hill Country Ecology - Why it Matters

ID : 46053   
« back to classes page
The condition of our Native Hill Country habitat matters to everyone, whether a rancher, a small landowner or a city dweller. Well-managed native habitat captures rainwater more efficiently, is better wildlife habitat, better livestock range, more sustainable and more beautiful than poorly managed land. The main problems landowners face are overgrazing, past and present, over-browsing, cedar encroachment, erosion and exotic plants and animals. Forces working against the conservation and preservation of the Hill Country include the loss of farm and ranch land to development, land fragmentation, projected population increase, and a population increasingly disconnected and disinterested in nature and natural areas. Learn from a Texas Master Naturalist what we can do about all of this?
