The Texas A&M Forest Service is hosting an "After the Fire Workshop" on Wednesday, June 29th at the Taylor County Expo Center. The reason for the workshop is so that homeowners and landowners who were affected by the recent wildfires around Cisco, Eastland, West Texas, and the Mesquite Heat wildfires, can know how to better protect themselves and their properties.

While space is extremely limited to the first 50 registrants. The Taylor County Extension office encourages you to register early here. The workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, June 29th from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM at the Taylor County Expo Center at 1982 Lytle Way.

The "After the Fire Workshop" is being presented by our local Texas A&M Forest Service. While we are never really prepared for these kinds of disasters, we can at least be better prepared to defend our land, livestock, animals, belongings, and homes.

Recovery plans include grass restoration, tree recovery, and the cost-share program.

In some areas of the Lone Star State, firefighters assist the affected communities. They also help rebuild and come back after the devastating Texas range and wildfires. The Forest Service will share their plans and ideas on grass restoration, being prepared for wildfires, stabilizing and strengthening your landscape, the best plans for tree recovery, and the cost-share program.

Wildfires are very unpredictable and there's no way to know the intensity or the direction a wildfire will take, thus the reason to be better prepared. Interestingly, building things back the right way can improve tremendously the conditions of the ecosystem.

If you need assistance after the recent wildfires the Texas A&M AgriLife may be able to assist.
