Foggy Morning

It was foggy at Lake Wichita this morning. Consequently, I had the park pretty much to myself, other than 2 intrepid bikers that crossed the bridge to the right about the time I was leaving the part at 8:30. Usually there are lots of bikers and walkers on the trails on Sunday mornings.

Adult Education Presentation at RBNC

River Bend Nature Center will be presenting a series of Adult Education programs on water over the next couple of months. I have been asked to present the first program and will try my best not to put people off the remainder of the series. If you're interested in the subject of water, please come.
If you're a member of the Rolling Plains Texas Master Naturalists, the program will count for one hour of advanced training.

Don't Forget Trees Needed

Don't forget that Inland Fisheries could sure use your live trees for fish habitat. They haven't had many come in and plan to drop trees in Lake Arrowhead next Tuesday morning. In addition to the Inland Fisheries office, you can drop trees at Lake Arrowhead State Park if you live closer to that location.
