He’ll share lots of great pictures, current science, and live animals!Jeff Hill has worked on the recovery of the Houston toad for the last 2+ years. Prior to that, he worked on wetland restoration for the National Marine Fisheries Service in Baton Rouge, wetland regulation with the Corps of Engineers in Galveston, and in private consulting here in Houston.
