Dr. David M. Hillis at the Wildflower Center

Join us among the wildflowers as we celebrate the newest publication by evolutionary biologist and director of the UT Austin Biodiversity Center, David M. Hillis—Armadillos to Ziziphus: A Naturalist in the Texas Hill Country.

This inspiring collection of nontechnical essays touches on the ecology, biodiversity and restoration of the Texas Hill Country. Its here that Hillis has spent the better part of five decades, working to restore the natural beauty and diversity of his Mason County ranch while taking time to appreciate the natural history of the Hill Country. During this talk Hillis will guide first-time visitors and long-term residents alike in an appreciation for the Hill Country’s natural beauty and diversity.

Space is limited. Registration is required.


Armadillos to Ziziphus will be available for purchase in our Gift Store both before and after the event. David Hillis will be signing copies in our Gift Store on the day of this event from 2:10 – 2:30 p.m.
