Hello BPTMN Members –  

We need to make a correction regarding the location of the Spring Tours.  The Map link in the original email was INCORRECT!  Here is updated information for tour locations from Brandon Belcher:

We will be emailing a reminder to those who RSVP a week prior to each event.  Because tour starting locations are weather dependent, this email will include the tour location and map.  As we are anticipating a strong response, please let me know if your plans change so that we can make your space available to others. 

Program:  Clymer Meadow Preserve Spring Tours

Description:  Walk among the wildflowers during our Spring Tours of the Clymer Meadow Preserve.  Don’t miss your chance to visit this picturesque 1,450-acre preserve, which contains one of the last remnants of the Blackland Prairie—an imperiled ecosystem comprised of numerous bird, butterfly, and wildflower species. You’ll immerse yourself in the beauty and color of true Texas prairie while learning about the history and ecology of our native grasslands. Grab your binoculars and camera, pack a picnic lunch, and get back to nature. Tours are rain or shine! 

Dates/Times:  Four dates are being offered to accommodate everyone.  Tours will meet at different locations – information specific to each event will be sent with RSVP confirmation.
