The Texas Wildlife Association, Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are again hosting the South Texas Wildlife Conference.

The 13th annual event, scheduled for Sept. 28-30, in Victoria, will focus on energy development and the future of wildlife habitat.

The event kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 6:30 p.m. with a social gathering sponsored by the Texas Wildlife Association. Seminar registration opens at 7 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29.

The day’s topics are planned to include Projected Growth: Estimates from the Industry, Impacts on Wildlife, Restoration Strategies, and Legal Issues and Surface Use Agreements.

Thursday’s lunch will be provided, and the day concludes with a reception and hors d’oeuvres.

On Friday, Sept. 30, the seminars will last from 8:30 a.m. to noon, with the theme of the session being “Habitat Fragmentation: Fighting Back.”

The South Texas Wildlife Conference will take place at the Spring Creek Place Event Center.

Early registration is now open, and the fee is $50.

Registration fees after Sept. 14 will be $65.

A block of rooms at the rate of $94.99 per night has been reserved at the Fairfield Inn in Victoria.

This is a rare opportunity to hear from a wide range of professionals including land managers, oil and gas producers, policy makers and wildlife biologists about the future of energy development in our region and what it means for landowners and the wildlife they manage.
