TWA Private Lands Summit to Convene in San Antonio

San Antonio, Texas: Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) will be hosting the Fourth Annual Private Lands Summit on July 13, 2017 at the fabulous J.W Marriott in San Antonio.

The theme of this year’s event is “Understanding a Changing Texas”, and will focus on impacts of eminent domain and consequences of landowner liability. According to event Chairman, Greg Simons, “Texas remains one of the fastest growing states, and with that comes increased complexity with development pressures that are placed on private landowners. Recognizing these challenges and understanding how deal with these possible burdens is more important today than ever for Texas’ private landowners. This year’s Private Lands Summit will spotlight those topics.” A stellar cast of speakers will discuss an array of topics that include how Texas is changing from a demographic and value standpoint, different perspectives regarding eminent domain, as well as tools for protecting against liability exposures.

For those attendees who would like to enjoy an extended stay at the J.W. Marriott Resort, TWA will also be having its annual convention on July 14-15, with full trade show, seminars, Texas Big Game Awards statewide awards ceremony, live music, auctions, and plenty of things for the whole family to enjoy.

Other sponsors include Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Terra Stone Land Company, East Foundation, Wildlife Systems, Inc., Caeser Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, South Texas Property Rights Association, Texas Section for Society of Range Management, Texas Chapter of The Wildlife Society, Natural Resource Institute, Porter Insurance Agency, Texas Grazing Lands Coalition, Texas Agricultural Lands Trust, Borderlands Research Institute, Mule Deer Foundation, and J.
