USFWS Involvement with the Conservation of Grasslands via Pollinators
Don Wilhelm, USFWS Coordinator for Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program
Don Wilhelm will talk about federal partnership programs to increase conservation of grasslands via the enhancement of pollinator habitat. Don is the Coordinator for the USFWS’ Partners for Fish and Wildlife (PFW) Program in the Southwest Region (Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona) and is co-located at the Arlington, Texas, Ecological Services Field Office. Over his career he has served in a variety of roles, including Endangered Species Coordinator, Wetlands Coordinator, PFW Program Private Lands Biologist, and State PFW Program Coordinator. Don “grew up” in Weatherford, Texas, and currently lives in Aledo with his wife and youngest son. His oldest son is a freshman at the University of Texas.
*We apologize for the inconvenience from our March meeting. Many, many folks showed up to see Randy Johnson’s presentation on Pollinators and Natives: An Ancient Marriage. We had a miscommunication with the facility and found out that the entire campus was closed for Spring Break. Fear not, Randy has agreed to return and give us the presentation at a later date.

Stella Rowan Prairie Wildflower Walk
Wednesday, April 24 at noon
Meet at Stella Rowan Prairie, at intersection of Parking Lot E and Circle Drive. That is the closest parking lot to the Stella Rowan Prairie sign on wood fence.
RSVP with email@example.com
Join us for a wildflower walk at Stella Rowan Prairie, located on the grounds of Tarrant County Resource Connection. We will gather at noon & conclude about 12:45, or stay longer if you wish. Bring your phone, tablet or camera to record iNaturalist observations, if you want to remember all the species you see! Be sure to wear appropriate clothing: long pants, closed toe shoes, sun hat, etc. Also, please bring your own water bottle. Absolutely NO parking on the side of the road (i.e., not in a designated parking lot), as this really is a pet peeve of the property managers and doing so could get us uninvited to use the prairie for future group visits. Sorry about this strict rule, but the property managers have been kind enough to allow our group to use the prairie, so we need to abide by their guidelines.
