The Lone Star Healthy Streams program educates Texas landowners on how to best protect waterways from bacterial contributions associated with horses, livestock and feral hogs. “In Tarrant County a large number of our small-acreage land-owners have horses and enjoy the lifestyle of trail rides, horse shows and rodeos,” says Tarrant County AgriLife Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources Agent Fred M. Hall. To help land-owners understand how their horses and other livestock can effect water quality downstream the programs will focus on the Eagle Mountain and Village Creek watersheds.
