Statewide Delivery of Lone Star Healthy Streams Feral Swine Component and Providing Technical Assistance on Feral Swine Management in Priority Watersheds

Project Goals/Objectives: This project will continue the statewide implementation of the feral swine 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.

Priority watersheds selected for feral swine education trainings will be identified for water quality impairments resulting from high swine activity. Watershed-based education trainings will be tailored as much as possible to the watershed to convey biology, best management practices, removal techniques and laws and regulations associated with managing populations of this invasive species.
