What’s a River (and a Trail) Worth?
Thanks to Dianne Wassenich for sharing this story recently. It aligns nicely with the general principles our conservation committee (and the SMGA board) operate with. http://www.rivernetwork.org/news/whats-river-worth
Free Wildlife Viewing Maps!
Texas Parks & and Wildlife is celebrating the completion of the Great Texas Wildlife Trails by giving away free large colorful trail maps that make it easy and fun to plan a driving trip to go wildlife-watching anywhere in Texas. The Great Texas Wildlife Trails is a statewide network of wildlife-viewing trails that launched its first wildlife trail in the state 15 years ago. Today there are nine different maps, each corresponding to a different region of the state, with more than 950 viewing sites in all. Each region offers unique bird, mammal and butterfly viewing opportunities. So grab some binoculars, pick up your free trail maps at any state park or TxDOT travel information center while supplies last, and get out there and see how many different kinds of wildlife you can see!
