2013 Texas Wildlife and Woodland Expo

On Saturday thousands of visitors descended on the Lone Star College-Montgomery Campus in Conroe to learn about the forests of the region in which they live and how to best take care of it through hands on clinics, information booths, live demonstrations, and children's activities.  Attendees ranged from urban homeowners to rural landowners, boy scouts, girl scouts, outdoor enthusiasts and everyone in between.

The Water Resources program was on hand to answer questions related to water resources and provide information on forestry BMPs.  Donna Work, Hughes Simpson, and Todd Thomas handed out information and discussed BMPs and the forest-water relationship to any interested patrons of the event.  A demonstration was on hand to illustrate the importance of maintaining Streamside Management Zones (SMZs) complete with rainfall and runoff simulation.
