Default April and May (and a May Joint Venture)

This April's Meeting, which is going to be a local field trip, would fall on Easter weekend, so we are pushing to April 30. More details to come, but Alexander Duessen Park is looking to be a good spot for introducing folks to the outdoors.

May is going to be a BIG month for us...stay tuned while I get back to work and I"ll fill in the details in a bit....

-Dave

Okay, I'm back....

Instead of waiting, I want to let you in on the plans for May so you can mark your calendars. We are planning a joint field trip with the DFWAPC group to San Marcos. We'll spend the day checking out the river and it's appurtenances and do a little collecting (and eating ). The date will be May 14 OR 21...still to be determined. We want to get to San Marcos by 11:00, so we'd need to meet up and carpool (or whatever you want to do) early.

Our regular May meeting will still be held at the regular date of May 28.

Hey Dave! We are so looking forward to a joint endeavor! Many of us might be making a weekend of it. If you look on our (DFWAPC) forum we have ID'd lots of camping grounds. Some have cabins, some tent and RV sites. We even have a post about hotels.

IT'S GONNA BE FUN!!!

I will be joining in on this little endeavor.

The San Marcos river is where I first started to aquascape and was my original inspiration.

Glad you can join us "X"! By the way, we did set a date.

May 21 - Meet up at the Arboretum in San Marcos at 11:00, do a little browsing and eat lunch around 12:30. Lunch time can also serve as a catch-up gathering for those who don't make it there at 11:00.

I am SO ready for this...I've been in major need of a trip to the river for some time now. I'm excited about meeting some more DFW folk as well.

Tex, is Niko going to coming on this one?

So far as I know Niko is coming. So are Mike Cameron and Kim Owens. We are all very excited about this up here. Many are making noises of camping over for the weekend. We might bring our kayak! Fun! Fun!

Now... if I just had a collecting net.....

Is there a central place we can meet up at? I remember meeting in the FG parking lot last time...

Here is a link to the Aquarena Center where we will be meeting at 11:00 for the San Marcos trip. For those who will carpool, we can find a central spot in Houston. For those who want to drive themselves/families, just meet up at the Aquarena Center.

April meeting is this weekend April 30 as listed above

Time 12:30

Alexander Duessen Park http://www.co.harris.tx.us/comm_lee/PDeussen/



There is a Buffalo pen there that seams to be the main land mark since it is hard to miss so lets meet up there.



Recommended items to bring

zip lock bags (if you find anything to collect you will want these)

mudboots

if you are looking for fish, shrimp or crayfish then you will want a dipnet, bucket & fishing license (even minnows need a license)



Dave will not be able to make this meeting which is a bummer since he is the plant ID guru (expecially in this area) so I will be conducting the outing.
