PUBlic Knowledge: Horned Lizard Conservation
June 7, 2011
3005 Morton Street , Fort Worth, TX
PUBlic Knowledge is a monthly adult gathering celebrating brains and brew, presented at a local watering hole by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
On Tuesday, June 7, TCU assistant professors of biology will bring the classroom to the community for a laidback lecture on the Texas horned lizard.
The word “lecture” usually comes with the connotation of stuffy, drawn-out and for intellectual geeks, but the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History believes in providing education in fun and informal ways – like at local pubs and restaurants.
Dr. Dean Williams and Dr. Amanda Hale will speak on the Texas horned lizard and how they have been declining in number, virtually disappearing from Eastern and Central Texas, and how they may eventually be reintroduced in areas from which they have disappeared.
This won’t be a please-refrain-from-asking-questions-‘til-the- end-type lecture series, but an interactive evening with just a few of your local biology experts.
Gather your after work group and hop on down to the Magnolia Motor Lounge for an evening of brains and brews and learn a bit about our local horned frogs.
