and other Populations"

Presented by:
Stephanie Bilodeau

McAllen, TX 78504



Texas Nature & Environmental Photographers (TexNEP) welcomes you, the members and guests, to hear Stephanie Bilodeau a Coastal Bird Conservation Biologist with Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program. She spends most of her time managing spoil islands in the Lower Laguna Madre for colonial nesting waterbirds and monitoring these bird populations. She also works with breeding and non-breeding shorebirds.

Stephanie will be presenting a program on bird life on the Texas coast. Have you ever wondered why the Texas coast is important to many bird species? Or why the birds are so important? Or what we can do to help our coastal birds? Stephanie will answer all these questions and more…

The public is invited to attend the meeting, which takes place at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April, 21st . Meetings are held at the new headquarters of the McAllen Public Library, 4001 North 23rd Street (Nolana and 23rd).

There is no admission charge to attend meetings and participants are encouraged to bring up to three photos to show and share at the meeting. Images that can be shown on a digital projector are preferred, but prints are also welcome.

The TexNEP April field trip will be discussed at the Thursday meeting.



TexNEP members range from the professional to the newbie who are interested in nature photography. We welcome film and digital shooters. Programs each month feature a guest speaker and a chance for members to share and discuss their images with others. Also each month a selected member will display images from one of their favorite places. Field trips are planned on the weekends after the Thursday meetings to one of the many Rio Grande Valley photo hotspots.
