Center for Land Stewardship and Stakeholder Engagement


The Center for Land Stewardship and Stakeholder Engagement is a component of the Borderlands Research Institute, a research organization housed at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas.

The Center aspires to facilitate effective conservation in Far West Texas. The Center provides technical resources for landowners, energy developers, community members, and conservation partners.

Our goal at the Center is to do the following:

  • Provide science-based guidance to relevant stakeholders, enabling them to make informed decisions about minimizing developmental impacts while implementing mitigation and restoration activities.
  • Offer resources and technical guidance to area landowners and land managers to assist them in conservation and management goals.
  • Serve as a conservation liaison and convener for principal conservation partners in order to maximize the effectiveness of various conservation initiatives in the region.
