CRANE – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Crane County will conduct a Community Water Seminar from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 17 in the Crane County Exhibition Building Buffalo Room in Crane.

Individual registration is $12, due upon arrival. For more information contact Caleb Eaton, AgriLife Extension agent in Crane County, at 432-558-3522, cleaton@ag.tamu.edu .

“The last three years have totally changed the way the average Texan thinks about water, even out here in normally dry West Texas,” Eaton said. “We’re used to conserving in our region pretty much as a way of life, but this seminar is geared to give local and area residents a wide array of even more water-saving practices and tips for the home and landscape to help them in their water conservation efforts. As we’ve always known, and the rest of the country is fast finding out, water is our No. 1 need.”

Topics and speakers for the seminar include:

– Watershed Health and Management, Paul Weatherby, Middle Pecos Groundwater Conservation District, Fort Stockton.

– Water-Wise Landscaping, Permian Basin Master Gardeners.

– Home Water Conservation Tips, Eaton.

– Where Does Our Community’s Water Come From?, Dru Gravens, Crane city manager.
