Please make this entry on your calendar for the FIRST TUESDAY in APRIL and join us in downtown San Antonio! (The drive will DEFINITELY be worth the time.) Spring is definitely here, and the timing is perfect for Mr. Reid’s visit and presentation!
Martin Reid, who bases his consulting business in San Antonio, describes his website, www.martinreid.com: “This all about Nature. The primary theme is the identification and distribution of wild creatures, and the main focus is birds - with a strong secondary focus on butterflies and dragonflies.”
(His philosophy is ‘right up NPAT’s alley!)
Mr. Reid has lived and birded in Texas for 27 years, and offers bird survey services to landowners, businesses, and governmental organizations. In particular he has experience with assisting landowners prepare a management plan for switching from an agricultural tax exemption to a wildlife tax exemption, plus providing any bird-related activities included in such plans.  Martin also surveys butterflies and dragonflies.
