About this Event
Are you a new landowner and looking for information about managing your land?
Since 2018, the Landowner 101 Workshop series has been our flagship program targeted towards engaging with new landowners and providing an approachable introduction to the many components of land management. Started in McKinney, TX, this workshop series has grown to engaging and partnering with landowners across North Texas in cooperation with the AgriLife Extension offices in Collin, Denton, Hunt, and Grayson Counties.
In this program, landowners will learn the basics of everything from maintaining their ag valuation and grant/cost—share programs to pasture and livestock management. Our goal is to equip new and experienced landowners with the basic knowledge and tools to plan and implement the operational goals they have for their property.
Workshops will be a blend of in person at Myers Park, McKinney, TX and virtual. The workshops will cost $30 per session. Participants who register for all 5 workshops in the series will receive a Landowner 101 Ballcap.
