This talk will leave you with the knowledge and resources needed to encourage and appreciate a wider diversity of caterpillars, butterflies, and moths in a Texas native plant garden. Goes beyond monarchs and milkweeds!

About the Speakers

Both Lynne and Jim Weber are certified Texas Master Naturalists and Lynne is a past president of the Capital Area chapter. The Webers are dedicated naturalists who have been studying Texas natural history since they moved to Austin in 1989. They have served on the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP) Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) as well as on the boards of the Big Bend Natural History Association, the Big Bend Conservancy, and the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute. They are long-time members of the Austin chapter of NPSOT, conduct Golden-cheeked Warbler and Colima Warbler surveys, lead guided hikes, restore native habitat, map and remove invasive plants, and are stewards of an eight-acre preserve that is part of the BCP. Their nature photography and writing appears on Flickr and on their monthly blog as well as in several nature publications. They have co-authored four books and are currently at work on a fifth book, tentatively titled Naturalist’s Austin: A Field Guide to the Flora and Fauna of Central Texas, highlighting nearly 700 species of plants and animals in the region.
