Come find out how Purple Martins are Austin’s new bats. We will cover our largest swallow’s life cycle, dispel some of the myths surrounding them, touch on recent research findings, and highlight this spectacular bird which has a big migratory roost in Austin each July.
July 13 – Moths with Valerie Bugh
Of about 2000 species of lepidoptera found in the Hill Country, only 150 are butterflies. This program will cover both caterpillars and adults, identifying the major families as well as some oddities, and a look at the beauty of these often overlooked insects.
July 20 – Planet Earth II: Mountains
The wildlife documentary series with David Attenborough continues with a unique and intimate glimpse into secretive lives of mountain-dwelling animals.
July 27 – Small Scale Land Restoration
Meg Inglis’ first land restoration project began 17 years ago when she and her husband built their home on a 2-acre parcel of land near Dripping Springs. Her knowledge of ecology and their decision to be solely dependent on a rainwater system drove them to restore, not landscape their property. Learn about the process of this and other projects in the presentation: “Small-Scale Land Restoration.”
