Each month, this event will be updated with current Speaker and other information.   The Communications director will send out an email with Zoom meeting instructions.

Tuesday, June 8 7PM CST

Brandon will be speaking to us about the big challenges and complex problems currently faced by The Nature Conservancy, the rising opportunities for carbon markets in grasslands, and the soil issues he faces in preserving and restoring  prairies.

Brandon Belcher manages five North Texas preserves and more than a dozen conservation easements for The Nature Conservancy. His focus is protecting and maintaining grasslands, including remnant prairielands. Conservation of these rare and fragile ecosystems is accomplished through partnerships with private landowners, other nongovernmental organizations, and local cities and counties, as well as state and federal agencies. Brandon received a BS in wildlife and conservation science and an MS in biology – plant ecology from Texas A&M University-Commerce, where he teaches as an adjunct instructor.
