SUNDAY, MARCH 17, 2019, WHITE ROCK LAKE OLD FISH HATCHERY WITH CHRIS RUNK
Meeting Place: Proceed to where West Lawther and White Rock Road intersect. At this point you either go straight, if going south on West Lawther, or turn right if going east on White Rock Road. Go down the hill, under the jogging path and wind around past the guard house, filter building and sculling building. Park in the big lot where White Rock Road dead ends. Description: Arrive promptly at 7:30 AM for a field trip, approximately 2-3 hours, on foot at one of Dallas' prime birding locations.
Audubon Dallas is part of "For the Love of the Lake", the group that really loves White Rock Lake. We’re responsible for trash pick-up in the Old Fish Hatchery on a once-per-month basis, so Chris has added a few minutes to his bird walks there on Sundays, and he will supply the materials needed.
SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2019, SUNRISE (half day) - SOUTHSIDE WATER TREATMENT PLANT WITH BOB STONE!
Directions:At the junction of 175 and 635 (LBJ). Turn SE toward Kaufman. Go to the third side road - Beltline. Turn SE or right onto Beltline. Go 1.5 miles to the parking lot entrance at 10011 LOG CABIN ROAD DALLAS, TEXAS 75253 and meet Bob there. Description: The Southside Water Treatment Plant cleans about 50 million gallons of water daily, to return to the Trinity River. Its wetlands and surrounding area provide a welcome refuge to migratory and local birds, many of which are seldom seen in Dallas. We will focus on shorebirds, raptors and wading birds. This trip is limited to 15 people due to security concerns.
