Posted: Friday, November 14, 2014 12:00 am

Nyta Brown, park superintendent/ biologist for Old Tunnel State Park, will talk on Texas bats for the Hill Country Master Naturalist Chapter Meeting on Monday, Nov. 17.

Brown has spoken all over Texas about the bats at Old Tunnel State Park. She has always been fascinated with bats, but developed a love for them when she interned at Old Tunnel State Park in 2002. Brown has managed the bat presentations at Old Tunnel since 2004. She has written a children’s book “Frankie the Free-tailed Bat.” Based on science research, it gives an excellent description of a bat’s life here in Texas.
