Valerie Bugh - critter expert

“Give me your bugs, your flies, your mystery critters yearning for IDs….”

That quote defines the passion which Valerie Bugh will deliver to our November 15th chapter meeting.  An accomplished naturalist and photographer, she will present Floral Fauna, a survey of tiny critters living within local native floral habitats.

Valerie specializes in the arthropods of the Austin area, with interests in taxonomy and photography. She runs the Fauna Project at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, leads insect discovery walks, provides insect/spider identifications, gives talks to local organizations, and has published a pocket guide to The Butterflies of Central Texas.
