Spring Break at HNWR

Stitch a Chick.
Spring Break Family Fun is underway at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge this week and we thought you might like to see a few pix of the activities so far this week:

Monday, March 10  - began a series of guided hikes  led by Texas Master Naturalists Gerry Shehan, Sue Abernathy and Ginger Mynatt, and long-time volunteer Kay Bynum.

Nature videos are being shown daily.

Two-a-day Tram tours offer young visitors and their families a close-up of deer, birds and more along Wildlife Drive.  Thanks to volunteer drivers, Cathy Van Bebber, Carl Hill, Kathy Whaley and Dick Malnory.

Afternoon nature craft sessions have included  Fossil Fun, with Cindy Steele; Stitch a Chick, with Fran King, Bird Topography with David Palmer, and still to come - Butterfly Flutterby on Thursday, with Maegan and Catie Flood, and Bob & Weave Yarn Art, with Sue Malnory and Barbara Pent.

In addition families have been bicycling, fishing, picnicking and hiking and exploring  on their own. AND - it's not too late to enjoy Spring Break at the Refuge!
