Walk in the Woods: The Spring Creek Nature Trail and the Importance of Conservation with Bill Bass

Thursday, October 8, 2020

Walk in the Woods Nature Lecture Series invites you to hear from experts who will reveal the extraordinary plants, wildlife and geography of East Texas.

Bill Bass is a geographer and conservation photographer focusing on wildlife, nature, and conservation in Texas and the Gulf Coast. Bill takes a photo-journalistic approach to studying changes to ecosystems and habitats, and through his photos he is able to illustrate and communicate the importance of conservation and environmental issues to his audience. Bill is a resident of The Woodlands, serves as a board member for Bayou Land Conservancy, and works as a geographer for the Houston Advanced Research Center in The Woodlands.

Bill will present on the importance of preserving our natural spaces, specifically The Spring Creek Nature Trail. This 14 mile multi-use path that follows Spring Creek offers stunning views and a chance to see nature up close. From migratory birds to native wildflowers, the trail provides an escape back to nature in one of the fastest growing urban areas in the United States. Keeping these natural places free of pollution and development is challenging. Through conservation photography, Bill is working on a multi-year project to capture the landscapes, flora, and fauna of this system in order to communicate the importance of preserving these ecosystems.

The Fall 2020 Lecture Series will be presented online. Registration is required to receive the webinar link. 

This series will be recorded and available for those who cannot attend the program. For more information, contact enviro@thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov or call 281-210-3800.
