The Bennett Trust is a first-of-its-kind endowment made by Eskell and Ruth Bennett. The trust provides an endowment for AgriLife Extension to continue their tradition of conservation education and preservation of the Edwards Plateau. Funded by the endowment, the Bennett Land Stewardship program uses conferences tailored specifically for land management in the Edwards Plateau, covering issues such as brush control, prescribed burning, estate planning, water management and livestock stocking rates.
