Patricia Lewis, a valued member of the Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust, strongly promoted conservation of Big Thicket lands and native species. Her skills as a CPA in the small organization were appreciated. To date, as a result of the Trust’s cooperative efforts, over 270 acres have been added to the Big Thicket National Preserve.
Patricia supported her husband’s life work in macrofungi research and was a voice for the Gulf States Mycological Society through its newsletter and website. She was an active participant in mushroom forays and other educational events.
As a past Director of the Big Thicket Association she assisted the Audit Committee, and currently served on the Advisory Board.
