The birders will meet on Fridays or Saturdays at 8:45 a.m. and begin walking at 9 a.m.. We will be birding for about an hour. Locations will be in DFW, and emailed out prior to meeting. Small groups or families can also bird by appointment. 

Children 18 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All participants must wear a mask. We will be social distancing. Bring water and snacks, if needed. 

Bring bug spray, sunscreen, and a pencil if you would like. We will provide some binoculars, but if you have your own that’s great! A smartphone or camera is also very useful for birding.

Texan By Nature: Collaborative Conservation - Online

Dec 10 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Online TX

Texan by Nature's Virtual Conversation Series continues.

The December topic is Collaborative Conservation. Collaboration produces better results — more innovative solutions, deeply engaged team members, higher loyalty and morale. Research shows that teams working collaboratively stick to the task 64 percent longer than those in solitary endeavors, report higher engagement levels, cite lower fatigue levels, and have a higher success rate. Collaborative conservation spanning business, landowners, communities, and natural resource organizations yield similar positive results.
