We (Michael and Clint) love taking trips to the Hill Country, the Big Bend, the Big Thicket, or other natural places in Texas. And we also love learning about the land and the wildlife. We have been doing this for many years and we share the photos and experiences by giving talks and writing articles. We believe this is a way to bring about a love of nature in others, sparking curiosity and getting people to get out there and experience it for themselves.
For a number of years, we wrote and produced Texas Field Notes, a free e-publication that generally came out quarterly. We have retired TFN, but one issue is still available – the one produced in conjunction with the Texas Rattlesnake Festival in 2014.
The western diamond-back & rattlesnake roundup issue
The March, 2014 issue focused on the western diamond-backed rattlesnake, rattlesnake roundups, and the poisoning of habitat and wildlife with gasoline (as collectors drive rattlesnake out of crevices in the ground). It coincides with the Texas Rattlesnake Festival, occurring in Round Rock on March 8 & 9. The festival does not harm snakes or habitat and focuses on the positive aspects of all species of rattlesnakes. Download this issue by clicking Texas Field Notes – March 2014.
