The Hill Country is a special part of Texas with an attraction to millions of individuals who ranch and come to vacation, hunt, rest, and relax each year.  Along with the spectacular beauty of the area, the Hill Country has its own special needs for management and the 5th Hill Country Land Stewardship Conference -"Tools for the Trade" is designed to help land owners and managers address those needs.  

This year’s event will be held at the fabulous YO Hotel in Kerrville. Day 1 will include discussion topics and hands-on opportunities regarding grazing, plant management tools (prescribed fire, herbicide, and mechanical control options), Texas landowner tax valuation options, grazing and hunting leases, fence laws, and predator management and ID. Day 2 involves “Your Choice” of tours to different parts of the Hill Country on board air conditioned charter buses:

  • Tour A: Legacy Management, Hillingdon Ranch, Kendall County
  • Tour B:  Wine & Roses, Gillespie County
  • Tour C:  Wildlife Management, Kerr Wildlife Management Area

You will not want to miss this unique opportunity to better understand how to manage your piece of Texas, so join us in Kerrville; it’s the prettiest time of the year to be in the Hills! All meals and break refreshment items are included in the low registration fee.
