CASA volunteer training set for July 20

June 29, 2015

A new CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer training will be held in late July.

Fryrear, who extensively studied wind erosion for many years with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Big Spring station before retiring in the late 1990s, has continued his work on the problem in the private sector, developing equipment which allows researchers to more easily determine the effects of wind erosion.
