THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (March 27, 2017) – Whether it’s raptors, armadillo, deer or alligators, Texas Game Wardens respond to everything from poaching and game violations to weather emergencies, missing persons and water safety. Walk in the Woods Nature Lecture presents Coexisting with Wildlife with Hendrik Volschenk, game warden for Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Thursday, April 6, 2017, 7:30 p.m., at McCullough Junior High School, 3800 S. Panther Creek Drive.
A native of South Africa, Mr. Volschenk served with anti-poaching units for the South African National Parks system before becoming a Texas Game Warden. Whether advocating for elephants and rhinos or armadillos and alligators, Mr. Volschenk has a passion for sharing his experiences and insights about living in harmony with wildlife. “I have dealt with this issue on two continents. It’s an ongoing relationship, and like all relationships, it needs work and a lot of understanding,” he says.
