Nathan Rains, TPWD Wildlife Diversity Biologist in the Cross Timbers and Hill Country Wildlife Districts will present on Texas Horned Lizard Restoration.

Everyone loves horny toads, but for many Texans the fierce-looking, yet amiable, reptiles are only a fond childhood memory. Once common throughout most of the state, Horned Lizards have disappeared from many parts of their former range.  Come learn what the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is doing to help preserve Horned Lizards and their habitat.

Nathan has and B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Texas A&M and an MS from LSU.  He started his career with the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries in 1998 and moved to Texas to work for Texas Parks and Wildlife in 2000.  He is currently a Wildlife Diversity Biologist.
