Webinar examines storm’s impacts on wildlife
Monday, April 12, 2021 by Tai Moses
The Texas Master Naturalist Program is presenting a webinar that will examine Winter Storm Uri’s impacts on the state’s fish, wildlife and natural ecosystems. According to the announcement from TPWD, “National headlines focused on the work being done in Texas to save and protect wildlife, from rescuing cold-stunned turtles and wintering bat populations to the impacts on coastal fisheries and bee populations.” Michelle Haggerty, state program coordinator for the Texas Master Naturalist Program, said, “We’ll get to answer the questions still lingering from this extreme weather event and learn how our resources adapt and recover from this and possible future events. Our Texas Master Naturalist volunteers are eager to learn about the effects from the polar vortex on natural resource flora and fauna in Texas, but more specifically, what recovery looks like and how they can help.” Natural resource experts from across the state will be presenting during the webinar, which is free and open to the public.
