1st Annual Mothing Event – Information for Parking

Hello Master Naturalists!

As we get closer to our 1st Annual Mothing Event at the Connemara Meadow, we want to share instructions on where you can find parking for the event that night. There are three parking options to choose from. Please see the instructions below and check out the maps that have been provided. For those of you who’ve never been to the Connemara Meadow, here’s a link with more information: www.connemaraconservancy.org.

 

Parking Option 1: This is a parking lane at the intersection of Greensboro Drive and Albright Drive, Plano, TX 75025. The parking lane is next to the Connemara Meadow. After parking, walk down the slight hill to the sidewalk, take a right and follow the path right into the Meadow.

Parking Option 2: This is the Alma Parking Area for Connemara, and the entrance is on the opposite side of Alma Drive across from the intersection of Alma Drive and Tatum Drive, Allen, TX 75013. Please don’t turn onto Tatum Dr., rather turn into the Connemara parking area, park your vehicle, and walk down the gravel path, across the bridge and into the Meadow. There will be signs.

Parking Option 3: This is the parking area at Suncreek Park, 601 Alma Drive, Allen, TX 75013. This parking area may be crowded if there is a Cricket game going on, but it’s worth checking out. If there is no Cricket game happening, there are many parking spots available here. If you park here, simply walk down the paved path (next to the creek and go East on the path) into the Meadow.

Bob Mione has suggested that chapter members who’ve never been to the Connemara Meadow consider taking a few practice-runs to find the parking areas before the event on the 30th. Be sure to check out the maps provided and follow the links and directions.

It will be dark at the conclusion of this event.  Be sure to bring a flashlight to help you find your way back to your vehicle.

While we are experiencing very hot weather, we will be meeting in the evening and the Meadow is a very pleasant place to visit at night.

Remember, this is a family friendly event. Your friends and family are welcome to join us.
