AUSTIN – Understanding Texas private landowner needs, preferences and concerns in operating and managing their land and natural resources is the purpose of a brief online questionnaire developed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) Private Lands Advisory Committee in partnership with Texas A&M University Institute of Renewable Natural Resources.
The electronic survey is available now through Dec. 20, takes about 10-15 minutes to complete and is accessible at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BNPNBXR.
“Texas has over 142 million privately-owned acres and thousands of landowners, each having their own objectives in managing their property – their private rural working land,” said Dr. Bill Eikenhorst, chairman of TPWD’s Private Lands Advisory Committee. “With the help of private landowners who participate in this survey, we are hoping to find better ways to serve and meet their land management needs.”
Participation in the questionnaire and individual responses will remain confidential — responses will not be associated with landowners or their property and will only be presented in aggregate form.
