Seventh Annual Pedernales Wildlife Co-op Meeting
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 • Posted August 24, 2010

Pedernales Wildlife Management Coop 7th Annual Meeting and Lecture will be held on Saturday, September 18, at 4:00 pm at First United Methodist Church Activity Center in Johnson City and will be free to the public.

Todd Swift, our Blanco County AgriLife agent, has arranged to have Miles Phillips, the “specialist” in Nature Tourism for the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, speak at the Annual Pedernales Wildlife Management Coop meeting. Miles Phillips will be speaking on wildlife conservation and the consumptive and non-consumptive economic uses of wildlife and nature for community economic development.

Mr. Phillips has his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering with a minor in Marketing from the University of Illinois and his Master of Science degree in Parks and Recreation Management from West Virginia University. Mr. Phillips’ topic should prove most interesting and educational, as our Blanco County Hill Country ranchers consider opportunities to diversify their ranch activities to capitalize on the nature tourism potential of our Blanco County rangeland.

The First United Methodist Church Activity Center is located at the intersection of Avenue E and North Pecan Street in Johnson City. As with our six previous meetings, we are inviting the general public to join us at the meeting and lecture free of charge. The lecture and meeting should not exceed one hour and a half.

We appreciate Blanco County’s support and interest in the Pedernales Wildlife Management Coop and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
