water and trees Texas Water Symposium
The Texas Water Symposium: Created through the partnership with Schreiner University, Texas Tech University, Texas Public Radio, and Hill Country Alliance

Water, essential for life, is our most precious and valuable natural resource.  But water supply is limited and under increasing pressure from a growing population.  How will we protect this resource and plan for a sustainable future?   There is a great need for a water-literate public; decisions being made today have far reaching and long lasting effects for our children and future generations.

The Texas Water Symposium provides perspectives from landowners, policy makers, scientists, water resource experts and regional leaders. Join us as we explore the complex issues and challenges in providing water for Texans in this century.  

Each session is free and open to the public. The hour-long program begins at 7:00 pm, followed by discussion time with Q&A. The events are recorded and aired on Texas Public Radio one week later.
