2018 TWA Private Lands Summit — The Border Wall: Protecting Our Country or Dividing Our Interests?
We are hosting a broad panel of speakers to provide diverse perspectives on issues relating to border security and a possible physical wall along the Texas-Mexico border. Topics covered will include the criticality of border security, private property rights concerns, inadvertent wildlife impacts, and cross-border wildlife conservation efforts with Mexico. Our goal is to provide attendees with a thought-provoking discussion on this important matter to help all make well-informed opinions for themselves.
