Default June Field Trip to San Marcos (+ DFWAPC)

We are going on a FIELD TRIP!!! We have a field trip planned to the San Marcos River. We are meeting with the DFW APC. We will all meet at the San Marcos Aquarena Center at 11:00 am. That should give you time to get down there. If you are a late sleeper we will all be catching lunch around 12:30pm at the local Saltgrass Restaurant at 221 E SESSOMS DR. It's less than a mile from the aquarena and is on the river. We can even do some collecting there without even leaving the parking lot! Lunch is NOT provided by the club. You will have to pay for your own lunch. Make sure you bring your water gear. There are loads of plants if you'd like to do some natural wild collecting. That give everyone 2 chances to meet up with the group.



FINAL DECISION:

WHEN: Saturday, June 9th, 11 a.m at San Marcos Aquarena Center http://www.aquarena.txstate.edu/

WHO: Members and their families.
WHERE: San Marcos River.
WHAT: River exploration and wild collecting
HOW: Get yourself there!

You could make it a family camping get together for the weekend.

Man, that sounds like a blast! I will just be flying in from Missouri that day so my crew will not be able to make it, but we wish all-ya'll safe and happy plant hunting. If anyone takes some pics please share with the rest of the forum. I think the river site provides some insight into planted aquaria regarding nutrients, flow and replacement that we can all learn a little from.

I made the reservations at Saltgrass. If it goes similar to last time, I figured we'd be there about 1:00 and have about 25 people (members + guests, non-members who join the tour, people who can't make it, etc...). Oh, and I specified we wanted to be seated INSIDE.

Just a reminder, HAAPS and DFWAPC will not be paying for lunch (unless otherwise specified).

I wish I could come, but I am a little under the weather, now. I enjoyed the trip last year.

Paul, we enjoyed your company last year. So sorry you aren't feeling well. I know for professor's this time of year is hard as you have just finished grading and all. Hope you feel better soon!
