Given at the Trinity River Land and Water Summit in Athens, Texas, on October 2, 2013. Purpose was to highlight specific watersheds in the middle Trinity River basin and provide details on different watershed planning tools that could be used to improve water quality. Other presentations during the day explained how cattle grazing, row crop farming, and wildlife management can all accomplish water quality goals when done with the overall watershed health in mind, especially for the Trinity River that provides water for 45% of the Texas population. Presentation featured questions that the audience could answer using remote clickers for immediate feedback from the entire group. Results are on the slides and will lead to greater understanding of stakeholders in this part of the Trinity River basin. Keynote speakers were Todd Staples, Texas Agriculture Commissioner, and Bob McCan, President of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association.
