Charlise Hill-Larson, 2019
We are so pleased to welcome Dr. Carly Aulicky for our August Chapter Meeting. Carly is the North Texas Director of Outreach and Stewardship for the Native Prairies Association of Texas (NPAT). In her position, Carly acts as a resource and spokesperson for management and conservation of native prairies. Carly monitors NPAT properties and conservation easements, collects biodiversity data, holds educational workshops and talks, and coordinates volunteer efforts in programs and projects.
Her doctoral research was conducted on the lesser prairie-chicken (Tympanuchus pallidicinctus), a species of grouse famous for elaborate male courtship displays called leks. She will be speaking on the lessons learned from her study of these dancing birds.
Editor’s Note – Tom Shackelford requested that the meeting information be held until after the Thursday, 8/5 Board Meeting.
