The public is invited to attend the November 27, 2017 meeting of the Texas Master Naturalist Hill Country Chapter to hear Rufus Stephens, wildlife biologist, and Jan Wrede, educator, discuss their new publication.

After years of working with landowners, land managers, naturalists, county officials, and others about wildlife management and land stewardship for birds in the Texas Hill Country, Stephens and Wrede teamed up to write a practical guidebook on how to improve habitat for birds on both small and large properties throughout the Hill Country. They will discuss common problems and possible solutions for developing optimum habitat. By helping readers recognize and evaluate habitat health and then use appropriate habitat enhancement practices, the authors hope to inspire and enable widespread and effective bird conservation in the Texas Hill Country. Rufus is a Certified Wildlife Biologist recently retired from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department where he had held the position as the Wildlife District Leader for the Edwards Plateau wildlife district.  Jan is a former director of education at Cibolo Nature Center and the author of Trees, Shrubs, and Vines of the Texas Hill Country.  Copies of the new publication, Attracting Birds in the Texas Hill Country: A Guide to Land Stewardship, will be available for purchase at the meeting.
