Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters Program is hosting two residential rainwater harvesting and turf management trainings in the Texas Hill Country Oct. 12-13.
The program goal is to improve and protect surface water quality by enhancing awareness and knowledge of best management practices, coordinators said. Attendees will learn about the design and installation of residential rainwater harvesting systems and appropriate turf and landscape species based on local conditions.
Both events are free and open to the public. The first training, in collaboration with the Upper Cibolo Creek Watershed Partnership, will be 1-5 p.m. Oct. 12 at the City of Boerne Library, 210 E. Live Oak St. in Boerne. The second training, in collaboration with the Cypress Creek Watershed Partnership, will be 8 a.m.-noon Oct. 13 at the Wimberley Community Center, 14068 Ranch Road 12 in Wimberley. Seating is limited, so attendees for either program are requested to register at the Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters website.
