There are many ways that folks can spend the Memorial Day weekend - picnics, boating and fishing, reunions, golf, graduation ceremonies, shopping, attending Memorial Day services and parades, and more. Three years ago the Friends of Hagerman decided to add to the menu by offering a day of fun on Memorial weekend Saturday, a day that would be filled with FREE activities, outdoor activities focused on nature, to be held at the Refuge. Super Saturday 2008 got off to a great start - the 2009 edition sagged a little due to flooding from Lake Texoma in May and the closure of Refuge Road for highway construction. This year the planets are all lined up for a great event! No flooding. all roads lead to the Refuge! Now, barring rain, Hagerman NWR and the Friends are set for record attendance for 2010, and what a line-up of activities - events for kids, events for adults and events for ALL! We have nature talks, nature walks and nature fun! FREE! AND we have added a service project, creating hair booms to help collect oil from the Gulf spill, that you can help with, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. ! So check out the complete schedule on the website below and come on out to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge - for all day or part of the day - and GO WILD on SUPER SATURDAY!
