GREENVILLE – A program for landowners hoping to utilize wildlife management tax exemptions on property will be April 7 at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center, 5501 Business Highway 69 S., Greenville.
The program cost is $25 per individual and $40 for couples from the same household. Attendees must preregister and submit payment by March 30. Lunch is included. Attendees are urged to bring a jump drive to download written resources.
The event is co-sponsored by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Hunt County Appraisal District and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Topics will include land qualifications, categories of wildlife management use — such as habitat, supplemental feeding and shelter — and how to complete a wildlife management plan.
Speakers will include biologists from TPWD; Monica Purviance, NRCS district conservationist, Greenville; Kyle Wilhite, appraiser supervisor, Hunt County, and Sara Allen, AgriLife Extension agent, Hunt County.
“Wildlife management has become a popular option for landowners who wish to actively utilize their land and receive the special valuation for property taxes,” Allen said. “This is an alternative form of the agriculture use designation that can have favorable tax implications for landowners. Anyone with an interest in wildlife management is encouraged to attend.”
