Re-Horning Texas: A Historical Introduction to Restoring Texas Horned Lizards

Presenter:  Dusty Rhoads, author and horned lizard researcher

This talk presents the history of the Great Plains — and its dismantling — as it relates to Texas Horned Lizards: their history, ecological needs, adaptations, and their uncertain future. The speaker hopes that such information will equip the average Texan with the appropriate background to know how they can link, increase, improve and create habitat to make a measurable difference to the prosperity and “comeback” of Texas Horned Lizards.

Bio: Dusty Rhoads is a research biologist who has studied the ecology and conservation of some iconic native Texas reptiles, especially Trans-Pecos Ratsnakes and Texas Horned Lizards.
