This Saturday's meeting is at the TP&W office in Grand Prairie (directions are on the website). The meeting starts at 7pm. Here is part of what I put in the newsletter regarding this month's program:

"The Texas Nature Conservancy lists eleven ecoregions in Texas, and those regions support a very wide diversity of reptiles and amphibians, along with other wildlife and plant communities. In north Texas, the Nature Conservancy groups four of those regions together under the heading “plains and prairies”. Many of us have spent years herping in this area, and have seen many acres of streams, fields, and woods turned into new houses and malls. Lost with those acres were smallmouth salamanders and bullsnakes, massasaugas and Texas earless lizards, ornate box turtles and many other herps. Any sizeable plot of land saved from homebuilders, highways, and all the rest is cause for celebration.

"Among those who protect some of our plains and prairies is The Nature Conservancy. As the North Texas Projects Director for the Texas Nature Conservancy, Jim Eidson will be a welcome guest as well as our speaker this month. Jim has a Masters degree in Rangeland Ecology and Management from TAMU and his area of focus is prairie restoration and restoration ecology. He has been with the Nature Conservancy for seven years and is a fifth generation “blacklander” (from Texas’ blackland prairies).
