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.

A native Texan, Brown received her BA in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing from Texas State University. Her MA in Applied Geography with an emphasis in Environmental Education is also from Texas State University.

The monthly meeting of the Master Naturalist is free and open to the public. Meetings are held at the Upper Guadalupe River Authority’s lecture hall, located at 124 Lehmann Dr. in Kerrville. Socializing begins at 6:30 p.m., with the program starting at 7 p.m.
