Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center at Athens, TX

 Registration is closed for this event

Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center at Athens, TX, Wednesday, February 19.   We will hop on a bus and drive about 75 miles to visit this interesting center that is recognized as a national leader in implementing effective natural resources conservation and outdoor recreational programs.  Built as a joint venture between the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation  and the city of Athens, this center offers dive programs, aquatic education and a production freshwater hatchery. Developed on a 107-acre site, the facility includes a 300,000 gallon indoor and outdoor aquarium displaying dozens of species of native fish, waterfowl, alligators and amphibians in recreated habitats. We will leave at 8:30 am, travel to Athens, watch the 11:00 am dive tour (and talk to the diver while he is underwater), then we will have lunch at The Boat House Grill (on our own) and return about 3:00 pm. Cost will be $15 for members and $16.50 for nonmembers.

Reminder - You must be logged in to the website to register.
If there is a cost, payment online or by check (no cash, please) must be at the TIAA's office 7 days prior.

TI Security requires everyone who enters the site to have either a TI retiree badge or other identification.
Please be prepared to show either upon request.
