The 2015 trainees had a great second class with Dr. Pamela Owen, Associate Director of the Texas Memorial Museum, teaching the overview of Texas mammals. CAMN has been fortunate to have Dr. Owen teach this class for a number of years. As part of the talk, she brings examples of pelts and skulls for students to examine and compare. In addition, she helps the students interpret the findings at scent stations set up to attract animals and record their tracks.
This class has been held at McKinney Falls State Park for the past few years, and we were happy to have the help of Jenn Menge, the park’s interpretation and outreach coordinator, as well.
Thank you to class coordinators John Barr and Dorothy Young for their work in setting up the class.
