Sierra Club Outing to Hagerman Refuge
A Dallas Sierra Club outing on December 14 will give participants a unique opportunity to view birds and other wildlife at the Hagerman Wildlife Refuge. The tour will start in the early morning because the birds are most active in the morning, and will last until around lunchtime. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy after the tour. There will be an optional hike after lunch and the group should arrive back in Dallas by 5 p.m.
The Friends of Hagerman are providing the guided tour of the refuge and a short tour of the new and unique Silver LEED certified visitor center. The building incorporates special features to prevent bird deaths on the large windows. Species likely to be spotted include: snow geese, pelicans, bald eagles, and lots of ducks, terns, deer, bobcats and raccoons.
