West Texans invited to attend Respect Big Bend webinar

ALPINE Residents of West Texas are invited to attend a free webinar from noon to 1 p.m. June 16 to learn more about the recently completed report issued by the Respect Big Bend coalition. “Finding Common Ground: A Conservation Vision for the Big Bend Region” will feature a discussion laying out the results of the Respect Big Bend project.

Billy Tarrant, associate director of stewardship services at Borderlands Research Institute at Sul Ross State University, will provide a summary of the project and associated recommendations that can help mitigate possible energy sprawl through a cooperative landscape planning process.

The goal of the June 16 webinar is to educate the local community about recent energy projections, and how best to develop strategies to conserve the unique resources and communities of the region. The webinar is sponsored in part by the Respect Big Bend coalition, The Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, Permian Basin Area Foundation, The Meadows Foundation, Still Water Foundation, and the Borderlands Research Institute at Sul Ross State University.
