"Living with Wildlife" Educational Series

The Bob Jones Nature Center, along with the City of Southlake’s Department of Public Safety, will present a “Living with Wildlife” educational series with Corporal Thomas Keen and Field Services Officer Ronnie White on Saturday, February 18, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Bob Jones Nature Center

Attendees will learn more about wildlife animals, such as the feral hog, and their natural habitats.  The presentation will also cover the natural history of feral pigs and their effects on property in parks and residential areas.  Instructors will also discuss population control of wildlife.  There is no fee to attend.

The second presentation will be Saturday, March 10, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  As Southlake develops and new homes and businesses encroach on natural habitats, more and more residents are dealing with wildlife and their distinct behaviors. This is a great opportunity for residents to learn how to handle these often-times unwanted guests.  The presentation portion of the class is free.

During the second half of the program, Texas Metro Wildlife rehabbers will guide attendees in building their own squirrel box to take home.  Cost to cover the materials is $10.00 per box.  Reservations are required to ensure adequate materials are available.  Please call 817.939.1110 or email to reserve your spot.

The Bob Jones Nature Center organization is a 501c3 non-profit organization working with the City of Southlake and is dedicated to the preservation of the Cross Timbers ecosystem and natural resources.   The Bob Jones Nature Center is located at 355 E. Bob Jones Road in Southlake.
