Come hear fellow CAMN Member Beth Crouchet give her presentation on Mortality of Texas Trees. Beth successfully defended her Master’s Thesis at Texas State this summer, receiving her Master’s in Population and Conservation Biology. She has spent the last two and a half years completing site assessments across Texas. She measured and assessed the health of over 8000 trees and collected multiple site factors including local daily temperature and precipitation. While her sites ranged from the Trans-Pecos area to the Panhandle & Piney Woods, Beth’s talk will address how these site factors affected common trees in our area.

Beth received her BS in Environmental Science from Concordia University in 2010. She is a member of the 2016 CAMN class and frequently takes her two boys with her on service projects and nature hikes.

This will be CAMN’s last regular monthly meeting for 2016. We’ll post the schedule for 2017 later this year.
