David Todd will describe the origins, goals, and basic content of The Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People, an atlas co-authored with Jonathan Ogren, and published this past summer by Texas A&M University Press. The atlas contains forty chapters, three hundred maps, and over one hundred figures describing major environmental events and conservation efforts in the state. To provide more detail about the atlas, David will provide examples about bird protection drawn from the book.

David is the founder and executive director of the Conservation History Association of Texas, a small, Austin-based nonprofit dedicated to environmental education. He was responsible for the data collection, text, drawings and draft maps used in the atlas, The Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People. David has a B.A. in architecture and urban planning from Princeton University, an M.S. in environmental science from Rice University, and a J.D. from Emory University. He has worked as an attorney on environmental cases, a donor for conservation causes, a cattle rancher, and as a co-editor of the oral history compilation, The Texas Legacy Project: Stories of Courage and Conservation (Texas A&M University Press 2010).

His book will be available for sale before and after the program.

A New Look for the Houston Audubon Website

New website on a smartphoneWe are working hard to implement new features and improvements to the Houston Audubon website, including smartphone and tablet access; better visual display; and simpler navigation. The address will be the same. On the right is a sneak peek of what the mobile display will be like. For the history buffs, Houston Audubon has been on the Internet since 1999. This will be our third major redesign as we keep up with the times. The new site will be unveiled in mid-November.
