The May program featured

Dr. Eric Schroeder (Texas Parks and Wildlife) speaking about

Heritage Preservation on Private Rural Lands.

Dr. Schroeder gave an overview of the Texas Private Lands Preservation Partnership (TPLPP), the threats to heritage resources on private lands, and the techniques private landowners can use to preserve these resources on their land.

Eric Schroeder is a 27-year professional in the cultural resources consulting field, providing regulatory advice to a broad range of clientele from government to private industry. He has been a lifelong learner. He holds a doctorate degree in anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin where his academic interests center around the material culture of prehistoric Native Americans, primarily in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Topical areas that pique his interest are complex hunter-gatherers, status and inequality, trade and exchange, craft specialization, warfare and conflict, and ethnohistory.
