John Bunker Sands Wetlands tour
John Bunker Sands Wetland Center Tour, Seagoville, Wednesday, September 12. This Wetland Center is one of the largest, constructed wetlands in the United States and is located along the banks of the East Fork of the Trinity River. It was dedicated as a wetland mitigation bank in honor of the late John Bunker Sands (1948-2003) and provides facilities to further our understanding of the area's water supply challenges and the importance of habitat conservation. We will leave TI in a bus at 9:30 am, enjoy a private tour of the wetlands center, saunter along the nice, secure boardwalks which extend into the living wetland so we can better observe the birds, reptiles and water creatures from just a few inches above the water, relax in the rocking chairs on their porch, eat lunch at Granny's Chicken (on our own) and return around 2:00 pm. Cost will be $12 for members and $14 for nonmembers.
