The WCI Southwest Region spring meeting brought together over forty collaborators from the forest industry, state and federal agencies, and private organizations across East Texas and Oklahoma. The goal of the meeting was to build on successes and explore additional collaborative conservation opportunities to benefit a range of species, from aquatic species like fish and mussels to upland species like reptiles. 

The group visited timberland stands of various ages and streams with riparian buffers. The day concluded with a tour of a local mill. 

The in-person participation by so many highlights the importance of collaboration when maintaining and and enhancing conservation benefits on private working lands.
