The Fauna Project, initiated in March, 2010, collects information on the Arthropods and other animals of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center located in Austin, TX.

The main activity of the Fauna Project is the weekly survey to note observations about the animals found in the Gardens and surrounding trails. These basically consist of a group of people trying to see as much as possible. Our main focus is on the numerous insects, spiders and other invertebrates, but we will occasionally encounter larger animals such as reptiles, birds, and mammals. Valerie Bugh is leading the surveys, but has limited knowledge of birds, so we appreciate experienced birders. The information gathered is being added to a database that will give a more comprehensive view of the wildlife populations. One of the benefits of these surveys is to help the visiting public see and understand a bit more about the ecology of gardens.
