Invasive species in Texas
Non-native invasive species are all around us, along our greenbelts, in our water, and in our yards. The number of invasive species has drastically increased due to increased globalization. These species decrease biodiversity and cause economic costs, so come out to Science Under the Stars this April, to learn more about what an invasive species is, which invasive species are a problem around Texas, and what you can do to help.
Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series in Austin, Texas. The talk will be held outdoors at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703.
Here’s the schedule for this month’s event:
- 7:15pm – Snacks, natural history displays, and activities designed for kids of all ages will be available!
- 7:30-7:50pm – Guided tours of BFL may be offered, dependent on weather and light conditions (wear sturdy shoes and bring water)!
- 8:00pm-8:45pm – Settle in to hear the talk!
