Who's Hosting This Event?

Austin Water Wildland Conservation Division
Who We Are:

Created in 2002 by the action of City Council, the Wildland Conservation Division is within Austin Water. Though not directly connected to the delivery of drinking water and treatment of wastewater, the wildlands absorb rainfall, helping to alleviate flooding and prolong the inflow of water to area creeks and lakes, ultimately contributing to the Colorado River, Austin’s source of drinking water.

Join us on Friday February 17 from noon-1pm for the Wild Neighbors Speaker Series: Texas Groundwater Fauna with Benjamin Hutchins.

Benjamin is a researcher and educator in the Edwards Aquifer Research and Data Center at Texas State University. His research focuses on the distribution of groundwater species in Texas and patterns of biodiversity in subterranean habitats. He received his PhD from Texas State University and previously worked as the state invertebrate biologist at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. His presentation will provide an overview of the amazing and unusual organisms that live in the dark, underground waters of the Lone Star State with special attention to new discoveries and groundwater ecology in the greater Austin area.
