Fort Bend County’s Agricultural and Natural Resources Extension Program provides consultation and educational programs in the areas of livestock, crops, weed and brush management, grazing and forage production, water and soil testing, emergency management, field pest management, feral hog eradication and new landowner education.
The Agriculture Program emphasizes systems approaches that maintain and enhance agricultural profitability through the application of sound crop and animal production practices. The Fort Bend County Extension Service is addressing issues associated with the social and environmental impacts of food safety and quality, surface and ground water contamination, biotechnology and natural resources management.
The natural resources and environmental management program addresses educational needs related to the management, use and sustainability of renewable and nonrenewable natural resources. Drawing on a variety of disciplines, these programs typically focus on such topics as soil, water, air, plant and animal life, forests, rangelands and aquatic and other ecosystems.

We are a group of trained volunteers who share our appreciation and knowledge of nature with the community through outreach, education and conservation/restoration projects. Texas Master Naturalist is a program developed by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, a Texas A&M System and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
Its Mission: To develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. Many communities and organizations rely on such citizen volunteers for implementing youth education programs; for operating parks, nature centers, and natural areas; and for providing leadership in local natural resource conservation efforts. In fact, a short supply of dedicated and well-informed volunteers is often cited as a limiting factor for community-based conservation efforts.
