Conservation leaders gather to discuss issues facing North Texas

A huge “Thank You” to all who joined us in Allen on Friday for a daylong discussion of land conservation priorities, projects and potential partnerships that impact the North Texas region.

Led by Jack Tidwell of the North Texas Council of Governments and Carolyn Vogel of the Texas Conservation Connection, the group represented a wide cross-section of organizations, municipalities and individuals concerned about the future of the region as it relates to conservation issues.

Participants included representatives from Rockwall County Open Space Alliance, Upper Trinity Conservation Trust, Texas Parks & Wildlife, The Nature Conservancy, Trinity Trails Preservation Association, National Park Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Native Prairies Association of Texas, Rockwall Open Space Alliance, Trinity Trail Preservation Association and Shannon’s Farms. Also joining the discussion were representatives from the cities of Rowlett, Celina, Royce, Richardson, Pilot Point, Heath and Little Elm as well as various Master Naturalists.

The enthusiasm and passion of all the participants made it clear that there is a growing interest in making sure that protection of our natural resources in the face of rapid development is a top priority.
