Storm Water Management

Educational materials and promotional items will be available.
Texas Wildlife Conservation Issues
Texas boasts 213 species of reptiles and amphibians, 635 species of birds, 174 species of mammals, an estimated 5,200 species of plants and an estimated 30,000 species of invertebrates. However, complex and daunting issues are putting intense pressures on our state's wildlife populations. But the conservation community has faced seemingly insurmountable challenges and acted with conviction in the past. The conservation community rose to the challenge in the 1930s and again in the 1970s. With dedication, the conservation community can rise to the challenge again and secure a solid future for wildlife of our great state.
John Davis will talk about what the future holds for Texas' wildlife. He has worked for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for more than 20 years conducting field research, presenting ecological seminars, and overseeing various conservation and habitat programs.
