On January 12th, 2018, I had the pleasure to attend the Texas Conservation Symposium hosted by the Williamson County Conservation Foundation (WCCF) and Southwestern University.
This symposium is a one day free event where undergraduates, graduate students, environmental consulting firms and government agencies present varies topics on listed species such as the Texas endangered salamanders, Texas horned lizard and golden cheek warbler to name a few. Conservation and restoration efforts such as the spring restoration project in San Gabriel Park in Georgetown, Texas were also presented.
This is a great forum for all levels of biologists and the amount of topics covered was very impressive. I highly recommend attending the 2019 symposium and supporting local conservation entities such as the WCCF which provides conservation of endangered species in Williamson County while helping to promote responsible development.
