Project Goals/Objectives: This project will continue the statewide implementation of the feral hog management education program by conducting watershed-based trainings in selected watersheds. Priority watersheds will be selected in collaboration with TSSWCB and primarily represent those developing or in implementation phases of WPPs or TMDLs. Other watersheds may be selected based on need and in response to collaborations with other groups and organizations, including river authorities, SWCDs, local citizen groups/watershed associations, etc. Watersheds will be selected consistent with the State’s implementation of the Texas NPS Management Program and specific CWA §319(h)-funded projects.
