Dr. Burns will describe how his family, over 40 years, transformed a cow-calf operation into an award winning example of ecological restoration using the latest scientific information.  In addition, he will describe how the ecological restoration project has kept a large, multi-generational family united.  His talk will discuss what is possible and impossible both environmentally and within the family.  He and his wife, Toni, were recognized with a Lone Star Land Steward Award by Texas Parks and Wildlife in 2012.
