Default May Meeting! FIELD TRIP with HAAPS!!!

We are going on a FIELD TRIP!!! We have a field trip planned to the San Marcos River. We are meeting WITH the Houston Area Aquatic Plant Society. We will all meet at the San Marcos River Arboretum 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 12:30am or 1pm at a local restaurant. That give everyone 2 chances to meet up with the group. We will post details and addresses later.

WHEN: Saturday, May 21st, 11am
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. There is a lot to do! Here is a link with just a few options.

We have thought about it. There all all kinds of insurance liability issues. Also not sure how many are really going to commit to go.

Save your gas money now! It's a lot of fun. Tex Guy and I might make a weekend of it and take our kayak!

If you decide to make a weekend of it you can always visit the local Houston Aquarium Warehouse and Houston Fish Gallery on Sunday.

I think so Robert but will have to check. We are meeting with another club. Last time we just had wives/husbands, no kids.

EDIT:
YES, family of DFWAPC members are welcomed to come. You can make a weekend of it.

No but that is something I would be interested investing in one. Would this work? http://cgi.ebay.com/Douglas-4x4-Minnow-Seine-Fishing-Bait-Net-/150587329479?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item230fb4 4bc7
