(August 20, 2021) — On Tuesday, September 14th, the Gillespie County AgriLife Extension and partners will host the annual “Kolaches and Conservation” event at the Extension Office from 8:30 am – 10:30 am.

This informal event encourages landowners who have questions about wildlife habitat, trees, riparian management, soil health, farming, ranching, and controlling non-native, invasive plants to stop by and talk with officials from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Forest Service, the Gillespie County Soil & Water Conservation District, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Hill Country Alliance, and Pheasants Forever.

Brad Roeder, Gillespie County Extension Agent, notes, “AgriLife is looking forward to working with local partners to host this fun, relaxed event to share tools and resources for landowners in Gillespie County.” Coffee, kolaches, and educational resources will be available.

“Good land stewardship benefits everyone, not only today but also the future generations that will inherit or acquire the land,” said Daniel Oppenheimer, Hill Country Alliance Land Program Manager. “Coffee, kolaches, and good conversation—what’s not to like?”

Landowners are invited to come and go as they like. The event is open to anyone interested in conservation and land stewardship. Tables will be spaced out and face masks are encouraged.

The Gillespie County AgriLife Extension Office is located at 38 Business Ct, Fredericksburg, TX 78624.
