During the event, students had the opportunity to learn about a variety of topics related to local wildlife, including how to identify different mammal species found in the region through the use of a skins and skulls display. In addition, students also learned about predator vs. prey animals, exotics vs. natives, as well as the different diets of mule deer and white-tailed deer.
The event proved to be a valuable educational experience for the Marfa ISD students, providing them with a hands-on learning opportunity and an increased understanding of the diverse wildlife found in their local area.
The TPWD biologists and the Dixon Water Foundation are committed to promoting conservation and education efforts in Texas, and events such as these provide an excellent opportunity to achieve these goals.
Overall, the event was a success, with both students and educators alike gaining a deeper appreciation for the local wildlife and the importance of protecting it for future generations.
