For our 2021 Conference, we return to the beautiful campus of Texas State University in San Marcos, situated on the banks of the San Marcos River. In addition to its Agriculture Department, which offers graduate and undergraduate degrees, the school is home to a student-run sustainable farm, a vast network of trails, and the Meadows Center for Water and Environment.

All conference events are on the 3rd floor of the LBJ Student Center (LBJSC). If using GPS, please navigate to the “Matthews St. Garage” on Student Center Dr. for parking.

Volunteers will be available and signs will be posted to help guide attendees from the parking garage to the LBJSC.

Signs will be inside the front doors to help direct you to registration, the Exhibit Hall, refreshments, and conference session rooms.
