You are invited to attend a Land Stewardship & Prescribed Fire Educational Blowout presented by the Ozona Chamber of Commerce in partnership with several other organizations. This exciting event will take place at the Crockett County Fair Park Convention Center on Feb.18‐19, 2022.
The event will feature informative presentations from various private and governmental organizations with missions to support Texas conservation and wildlife.
Educational presentations on important land stewardship topics will cover the benefits of prescribed fire, managing invasive animals, Devils River preservation efforts, conservation easements, cost-share programs, donkey adoptions, astro-tourism and night skies, eco-tourism, pollinator habitats, and more.
In addition, the event will conduct a prescribed fire ten minutes south of Ozona on the Baggett Family LP Ranch to provide education and training for event participants and volunteers. Representatives and instructors from Texas A&M Forest Service, Quail Forever, Texas Parks & Wildlife and more will be coordinating the prescribed burn.
