Enjoy a program led by Jonathan Davis, a participant on the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week television show and a graduate of Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School. Join us on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, to hear his PhD research focused on the Bull Shark. Davis will discuss some basic information about sharks, as well as groundbreaking research on their movements in our southern waters.

Did you know that many experts consider Bull Sharks to be the most dangerous shark in the world? Come find out why!

Don’t forget to visit Shangri La during the Scare Crow Festival and vote for the Golden Triangle Sierra Group Tree-Hugger as your favorite.

Outing November 8-9, Saturday-Sunday
Village Creek State Park

Join us for an overnight camp or just come either day. Saturday we will set up camp in the walk-in campground, or you can reserve a site with hookups if you prefer. Reservations are necessary for either, at 512-389-8900. If just coming for the day, no need. Only pay admission at the entrance. Bring your own water, food etc.

Saturday we will canoe Village Creek, so bring your kayak or canoe, and a pfd for each person, of course. If possible, we will arrange to shuttle to Silsbee and come back to the park. Otherwise, we will explore upstream and float back for a nice evening by a campfire.

Sunday after striking camp we will explore the trails and see how the forest is recovering from the hurricanes and drought of recent years. Bring your binoculars-maybe we will spot some of our winter resident birds! Then we head home, reinvigorated by our good times in good company.

Call Phil at 409-543-4616 if you are coming, and if you have any questions. Hope to see you there.
