We would be honored if you’d join us to meet our board members and hear what we’ve been up to. Look for an e-vite in your inbox soon. We’ll discuss activities past, present, and in the works, elect board members, hand out awards, and enjoy drinks and appetizers.
Guest Speaker: Jarid Manos, Author of Ghetto Plainsman

Jarid’s advocacy of protecting our ecological health is very much in line with the mission of SMGA. Stay tuned for place and time for Jarid’s presentation.

San Marcos River Foundation (SMRF) Annual Meeting
Be sure to mark your calendar for SMRF’s February 19 annual meeting and silent auction. Dianne Wassenich and her crew of volunteers share an amazing and delicious multi-course meal along with a brief progress report on SMRF’s annual accomplishments, which are many. Our community and the San Marcos River have a great deal to thank Dianne and SMRF for when it comes to advocating for clean water and keeping us abreast of local and Central Texas development. Email [email protected] to get on SMRFs newsletter list and/or to learn more about the great items to be auctioned off at the event. (While we are on the subject of SMRF, Green Guy continues to allow anyone to drop off aluminum cans and tell the Green Guy staff that the donation is for San Marcos River Foundation. Green Guy tracks these donations and sends SMRF a check that supports work protecting the San Marcos River.)
