Home to five species, three of which are endangered, Texas claims more wild feline species than any other state. Find out where they live, what they eat, what protections they have, and why they are so important to our ecosystem. Get to know our bobcats, mountain lions, ocelots, jaguarundis, and jaguars.

Meetings are held in the Upper Guadalupe River Authority Lecture Hall, 125 North Lehmann Drive near downtown Kerrville. Join us at 6:15 for a social half hour, chapter business at 6:45, speaker begins at 7.More button orange
