- Youth On-demand Webinars from our colleagues at Texas Wildlife Association.
- We’ve got some great news, Texas Discovery Gardens is debuting a new video series, The “Digital Garden”. Weekly releases will cover a range of topics highlighting horticulture, entomology and daily happenings around our grounds. Videos will be posted on all our existing social platforms, as well as our new youtube channel! We would love your support as we begin this new and exciting adventure. Feel free to share with your friends!
- The team at Birding with Extension was very bummed to have to cancel our Birding the Border program this year. But we still wanted to bring our participants a little taste of what we do, so we have taken our seminar content and moved to an online format! What that means is that anyone can join and learn about new bird research, managing for waterbirds, and the role of private working lands in wildlife conservation! April 16 & 17, 2020 – 2:30 – 4:30pm – Live webinar with discussion/Q&A. The cost is just $10 for both days. See the schedule, speaker bios, and register at Virtual Birding Seminars.
Class of 2020 Classes cancelled until further notice. Discovery Science Place is closed until 20 April. We will advise all as soon as we can reschedule. Please note the upcoming NOAA Webinar as follows:
- Social gatherings have been suspended for now, but our webinar on weather and climate with Jason Hansford will be held on schedule on Tuesday, April 14th in your home. We will be using NOAA’s webinar capabilities and using our computers, phones and iPads to have interactive Q&A with Jason as we go along. As of right now, 29 hours of classes and field trips have been offered. If you have attended everything, you need 11 or more additional hours in order to graduate and complete training. We will be doing our best to make sure those additional hours are offered to you in a safe and easy way. Please do be patient. State has offered free Zoom capability, but there are some issues yet to be worked out with using Zoom. If you have experience with using Zoom, please do let me know your input. For now, the only class firmly scheduled will be April 14th. I will send you all the instructions for joining the webinar when Jason gets them to me.
Those of you NOT in the 2020 class may want to join this webinar. (1) If you have certified in another class and did not attend the weather and climate class, you may arrange to attend this as AT by contacting Beverly and letting her know you plan to use this as AT. You will be given instructions for attending. (firstname.lastname@example.org) (2) If you have NOT YET CERTIFIED and you did not attend the weather and climate class during your initial training, you may attend this webinar and count it as part of your initial training requirements. Contact Beverly for instructions.
