Devil in the Details: Using Scat to estimate population size of Texas Horned Lizards

Monday, March 25, 2019, First United Methodist Church, Waxahachie, Family Life Center - Gathering Room

 6 p.m.: Business Meeting • 7 p.m.: Program

Alexis Ackel, an Environmental Project Manager at DFW International Airport, graduated with a Master’s of Science in Environmental Science from TCU, where she studied the school’s iconic mascot – the Texas Horned Lizard – in the conservational biology lab.

These diminutive dragons of Texas lore have vanished from DFW and face population declines throughout their natural range. Accurate population data are needed to ensure their effective conservation. Alexis’s talk will focus on utilization of non-invasive genetic sampling via scat to estimate population size.

This program is part of a series of “no cost” “open to the public” Master Naturalist programs offered the fourth Monday (generally) of each month, 7-8 p.m. Please bring a friend! For more information, please call the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension at 972-825-5175 or email:
