Naturalist Talk Speaker | Topic:  Chase Brooke | The Junipers of Texas

Description:  Junipers are a ubiquitous sight across Texas. From the trans-Pecos to the piney woods, most ecoregions in Texas have at least one species naturally occurring within it. Chase will discuss the five most commonly occurring native juniper species in the state, their unique characteristics, how to manage them, and how to identify them.

In this role, he provides high-impact, research-based information and educational opportunities to residents, landowners, and agricultural producers in Collin County. Chase owns both a B.S. in Spatial Science and an M.S. in Ecosystem Science and Management from Texas A&M University.
