The program, “Scat and Tracks,” is by Gwen Eishen, Texas Wildlife Association educator and Texas Master Naturalist. Eishen, a Texas native who grew up in Duncanville with Ten Mile Creek in her back yard, has worked as an outdoor educator for many local natural resource organizations since 2012.

While pursuing her master’s degree in wildlife conservation from Texas A&M University – Commerce, Eishen is an educator for the Texas Wildlife Association teaching students and training teachers in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties. She is an ambitious gardener, animal rescuer, hiker, backpacker, kayaker, composter and Trinity River-bottoms explorer for evidence of wildlife. Her presentation will explore identifying animal scat and tracks and how to look for other evidence of wildlife.

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. The program’s mission is to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities for the State of Texas.

The program is part of a series of “no cost – open to the public” Master Naturalist programs offered from 7-8 p.m. the fourth Monday (generally) of each month. Bring a friend!
