Help the reforestation efforts for Bastrop's Lost Pines!

My name is Ingrid Karklins and I am currently a student leader in the Society for Ecological Restoration Student Guild. I am contacting you today because I believe many students within your department may be interested in getting involved with our student organization.

This year, we will be collecting loblolly pine seedlings in Bastrop on October 6th and students will have the opportunity to propagate them in the greenhouses in West Campus.   Additional projects include planting seedlings on Griffith League Scout Ranch in Bastrop; a restoration project in Schob Park; opportunities to visit with the Texas Forest Service and get involved in the Bastrop Fire Recovery project; opportunities to view the effects of severe fire on soils; an opportunity to help rebuild the Houston toad (Bufo houstonensis) habitat and more!

Our first meeting will be held September 26th in Rudder Tower Room 302 at 5:30 pm.

Thank you for your time and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
