Robert Denkhaus, Ft Worth Nature Center, Wild Pigs: The Ultimate Invader”.  Rob is the Natural Resource Manager at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge.  The FWNC&R was the first urban facility in the country to tackle a burgeoning wild pig population.  Wild pigs have been a problem in Texas for over 150 years.  Formerly found only in relatively wild areas, wild pigs now inhabit our cities and suburbs.  Like most animals that can survive in urban areas, wild pigs are highly adaptable generalists.  This presentation will detail the facets of the species’ biology and behavior that have made it such a successful invader.  In the spirit of “know thy enemy”, this information will be presented with an emphasis on how this invasive species can best be controlled.

Meetings are open to the public.
