Following the education session, for which a catered lunch will be served, the Texas Forest Trail Region board of directors will hold their bi-monthly business meeting; this will be the first business meeting of the new fiscal year. All interested parties are encouraged to attend the optional board meeting and learn more about the activities throughout the heritage region.
Cost to attend the workshop is $25 and includes lunch. Because of limited space, only the first 45 registrations will be accepted. Online registration and additional information about the workshop can be found at www.TexasForestTrail.com/workshops.
