COLLEGE STATION – “Drones on Rangelands – The Basics” will be the topic of the June 1 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

The webinar is a part of the Texas Range Webinar Series scheduled the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.

Dr. Megan Clayton, AgriLife Extension range specialist in Corpus Christi, will be the presenter.

“We will look at some examples of how drones could potentially be used to manage rangelands and uncover the legalities and rules for either commercial or hobby use,” Clayton said.

No Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered during this webinar, Flores said, so there is no fee.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu.  For more information on the webinars, contact Flores at Pete.Flores@ag.tamu.edu.
