SEGUIN — The Geronimo and Alligator Creek Partnership will conduct a free mini-tour of the Geronimo and Alligator Creek watershed area beginning at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority’s River Annex, 905 Nolan St. in Seguin.
“We will meet at the parking lot and the tour will take around two hours,” said Ward Ling, Texas AgriLife Extension Service program specialist in College Station.
Ling said a draft watershed protection plan for the area was recently completed and is now posted on the project website at http://www.geronimocreek.org.
“The tour will better explain and illustrate what impacts the plan will potentially have on the local area,” he explained.
Ling said the first tour stop will be at the upper end of the watershed near New Braunfels, where attendees will hear about some proposed urban best management practices.
“From there, we will travel to the next stop where we will learn about agricultural best management practices and feral hog control measures,” he said.
The final tour stop will be at the Oak Village North Subdivision near Seguin, where attendees will learn about the ongoing project to take the neighborhood off of septic systems and provide sanitary sewer service to the homes.
Refreshments will be provided during the tour. To secure a seat for the tour, RSVP to Ling by 5 p.m. Oct. 29 at 979-845-6980 or email@example.com.
“In case anyone has missed any meetings, they can review past meeting materials on the project website,” he said.
Ling said those wanting additional information on the tour may contact him or Debbie Magin with the river authority at 830-379-5822 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
