Organizers of the Texas Watershed Steward program urge anyone interested in water preservation to mark their calendars for a free workshop 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 2 at the Pilot's Lounge at Curtis Field in Brady, Texas.

Curtis Field is located at 3821 U.S. Highway 377 North. Brady Creek's water quality and watershed protection plan will be the focus on the workshop sponsored by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board. The workshop will provide science-based watershed education to enable citizens to address local water issues, according to Jennifer Peterson, AgriLife Extension program specialist, College Station.

"Texas Watershed Stewards trained through this program will learn about watershed systems and water quality regulations and monitoring," Peterson says.

Pre-registration deadline is March 28.

A meal will be provided.
