Beyrl Armstrong

How do we manage our land with rising temps and little rain?

Beyrl Armstrong, a principal and co-founder of Plateau Land & Wildlife Management, Inc., will tell us at our next meeting when he presents “Managing Land to the New Realities of Global Climate Change.”

Beyrl will discuss projected models of future weather patterns and the implications for land management practices here in central Texas.

Addressing the difficulties in planning for a “no-analog” future, he will suggest management methods for projected rising temperatures, increased aridity, and desertification.

Beryl has extensive experience in land and wildlife management, including running a 10,000 acre ranch on the Frio River, managing and protecting 24,000 acres for the Nature Conservancy of Texas, and restoring wildlife habitats, prairies and wetlands with the Environmental Defense Fund.  He has also worked to encourage landowner associations and cooperative management programs on more than 100,000 acres throughout the Hill Country and Lost Pines areas.

This chapter meeting will be preceded at 6:00 p.m. by a gathering of the Rare Plant Rebels (rare plant & seed exchange group).
