Wildlife Surveys at Deer Park Prairie and Sheldon Lake State Park
by Pablo Pardo, TWPD
Texas Park & Wildlife Department Intern Pablo Pardo will talk about his summer wildlife surveys of two local prairies: the Deer Park and Sheldon Lake State Park prairies. The surveys will create a baseline species list for DPP (a relatively undisturbed prairie) and SLSP a 10 year old restored prairie system. He plans to do small mammal trapping, amphibian/reptile trapping, bird observations, camera traps, acoustic loggers and possibly insect surveys in both prairies. The frog logger that was installed by Kelly Norrid & Diana Foss on January 28, 2015 (See Video Here – automatically starts at the 2 minute mark.) Pablo is working under the supervision of Texas Parks & Wildlife’s Urban Biologist, Kelly Norrid.
