Project Goals/Objectives: TWRI will continue to coordinate the Riparian Team for this project that is composed of TFS, TPWD, NRCS, TRA, NRA, TSSWCB, TCEQ, TRWD, AgriLife Research and Extension and others to assist with program development, marketing, and delivery. TWRI will continue conducting riparian trainings in targeted watersheds and providing access to the program through web-based outreach and tools, including the addition of an online training program. TWRI will organize instructor teams for each event, composed of members of the Riparian Team, contractors, and others as needed to deliver the Riparian Education Programs. The program will be adapted as needed to meet local needs such as addressing riparian issues in watersheds dominated by agriculture, forestry, urban, or a combination thereof.
