Wednesday, June 26, 2019
Houston Red Cross, 2700 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77098

Refreshments at 6:30 p.m., presentation starts at 7:00 p.m.


David Riley, staff biologist with Plateau Land & Wildlife Management, will present on range land ecology.

Plateau Land & Wildlife Management has been helping rural landowners protect and enhance their rural land since 1997. Plateau was born out of a law that was passed in 1995 by the Texas Legislature that made it possible for folks with an Ag valuation to maintain their same property tax savings while managing for native habitat and wildlife, instead of livestock, crops, timber or any other open-space management requirements. Plateau stepped up to help hundreds of landowners across Texas make this transition to Wildlife Management Valuation, and along the way, realized that there were many folks who needed more than just a Wildlife Management Plan to get their Wildlife Valuation in place.
