History of Wild Basin Lecture with Judy Walther

Come join us for a personal account of the history of Wild Basin from Wild Basin’s first educational director, Judy Walther. Judy will review the years from 1976 to 1986 where she initially worked out of her car to organize tours and develop programs, back before Loop 360 was built. Her early years as a pioneer at the Wild Basin were special ones. Working with 450 species and 200 pristine acres, Walther created an educational program that won the Governor of Texas Environmental Excellence Award. Walther, who has a Masters in Science Education with a botany specialty and is trained in wetland delineation, also created an easy-to-use identification key of woody plants that’s still used today. It was written for non-scientists and is easy enough for third grade students, although many adults have also enjoyed learning from it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
