Conservation Funding Available for West Texas Landowners

The Greater Big Bend Conservation Partnership program aims to implement landscape-scale conservation initiatives across West Texas. A joint venture of the Borderlands Research Institute and the Texas Agricultural Land Trust, the program is a cost-share initiative that will reimburse approximately half the expense of qualified conservation practices to landowners in Brewster, Jeff Davis, and Presidio counties. Funded by a $3.5 million commitment from the Regional Conservation Partnership Program, the partnership provides opportunities for conservation experts to collaborate with farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners to implement practices that conserve resources, improve habitats, and increase climate resilience. Activities include grassland restoration, construction of wildlife-friendly fencing, and riparian restoration. The application period for the partnerships ends December 22. Read more HERE.
