TCC-NW Meeting Location 2018 – 2019
This meet-up, we’ve got a short presentation on some of the wildflowers & grasses you might see over the upcoming months & learn some places to hike to see them. Afterwards, we’ll walk outside & look for wildflowers along Marine Creek Lake. This will be a great chance to shore up on plant ID & practice iNaturalist.
Please note: We will not be holding a June meeting. We encourage you to attend the North American Prairie Conference instead.

From Texas Alliance’s newsletter: “Representatives Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and Debbie Dingell (D-MI) introduced the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, H.R. 4647, which will provide $1.3 billion annually from existing federal revenues for state-led projects to restore fish and wildlife habitats. More than $60 million per year would be for projects in Texas.
Passage of H.R. 4647 would direct a portion of existing royalties from energy and mineral production on federal lands and waters to the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program. State wildlife agencies will distribute the money to projects for habitat restoration, scientific research, protecting land, establishing conservation easements, and other initiatives listed in the state’s Wildlife Action Plan to conserve Species of Greatest Conservation Need.”
