Ecology in your Backyard: Bardwell Lake

Quite often in many suburban areas, our natural habitats and systems get lost in the hustle and bustle. Our plants go unnoticed, animals underappreciated, and the uniqueness of the natural history neglected and unexplored. Bardwell Lake is located in Ennis, TX and provides a refuge for many of the local flora and fauna of the area. Stephanie Hebert’s discussion aims to bring the natural landscape of Bardwell to light, and the possibilities it has moving into the future as a natural history hot spot in the suburban landscape.

Stephanie Hebert has been involved in the Natural Resources/ Conservation Ecology field since 2008. She is also a state-recognized member of the Mi’k maq nation, originating from Nova Scotia, Canada. Stephanie holds a Masters Degree in Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology from New Mexico State University, and a Bachelors in the same from Northland College and is currently employed as a Natural Resources Specialist with the US Army Corps of Engineers at Bardwell Lake.

Indian Trail Chapter is part of the statewide Texas Master Naturalist Volunteer Program of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

This program is part of a series of “no cost” “open to the public” Master Naturalist programs offered the fourth Monday (generally) of each month, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Please bring a friend! For more information, please call the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension at 972-825-5175 or email: info@itmnc.com
