Events for Second Saturday, July 13

On Saturday, July 13, the  conversation at Second Saturday will heat up!  Global Warming will be the topic  at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge,  and the speaker, Dr. Keith Kisselle says, “Feel free to bring your questions – skeptical or otherwise.”  Kisselle will explain the greenhouse effect, describe the sources and changing concentrations of greenhouse gases, review the evidence that the climate is actually changing, and discuss projections regarding future change and potential consequences.   The  program will begin at 10 am in the Visitor Center Meeting Room.

Kisselle is Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Science and Chair of the Environmental Studies Academic Program at Austin College. 

At 12:30 pm on Saturday, July 13, the FOH Nature Photo Club will meet in the Audio Visual Classroom at  the Refuge. The club meets bimonthly and is open to all photographers interested in nature photography.   There will be a short program on "White Balance" and photo sharing, plus info about the 4th annual Hagerman NWR Photography Contest  which opens July 26.

If you have not been to the Refuge, Hagerman NWR is located at 6465 Refuge Road, Sherman, TX, 75092, on the Big Mineral Arm of Lake Texoma.  Second Saturday programs are free and open to the public.  Visitors are welcome, free of charge, at photo club meeting; there are nominal dues for membership.  For more information, see or call the Refuge, 903 786 2826.
