On Friday, September 5, 2014, Ernie & Becky participated in a workshop hosted by Connemara Conservancy to discuss and brainstorm land conservation priorities and needs for the North Texas area.  Becky, as an executive board member of the Rockwall County Open Space Alliance, was there with two hats on!  It was such a great day – full of big ideas as well as granular focus when necessary.

The title of the workshop and charrette was “Land Conservation and Its Impact on Quality of Life in North Texas”.  But boy, did it branch out further than that!  We strongly recommend that you check out their website at www.connemaraconservancy.org and see all the wonderful ways that this organization protects our natural and open spaces.

Ernie joined TP&W, RCOSA, and other representatives of like-minded conservationists.
