The management of natural resources is vital to insure no harm to the environment, while ensuring the property value. Often, management of these small properties falls in the hands of individuals who have had no experience in issues such as: grazing management, water conservation, brush control, and much more. Bexar County is surrounded by small tracts of land (5 to 100 acres) owned by individuals that are retired or have careers outside of production agriculture. Many of the small acreage landowners wish to develop small scale agricultural enterprises and/or utilize the land for recreational purposes.
