Arroyo Colorado

January 24, 2012

Hello Arroyo Partners:

It looks like winter has come and gone and nobody even noticed down here in the Rio Grande Valley.  We still have not received any decent rain and we are dealing with warm, humid weather at the moment.

I want to remind everyone that the ACWP will be holding several of their Work Group meetings in January.

The Arroyo Colorado Habitat Workgroup meeting will be held on February 9, 2012 from 2-4 pm at the Estero Llano Grande World Birding Center located at 3301 S. FM 1015, in Weslaco, TX.

Please make a note that the Arroyo Colorado O&E WG meeting will be held in conjunction with the Arroyo Colorado Steering Committee meeting on Thursday, February 9, 2012 from 5:00 -7:00 pm at the Estero Llano Grande World Birding Center located at 3301 S. FM 1015, Weslaco, TX.  We will be planning key activities for 2012 and want members of the O&E WG and Steering Committee present to help guide the decision making process.  We will have food and refreshments from 4:30-5:00 pm.  We will be announcing a very special fund raising event in partnership with the Valley Land Fund and the date for the first 2012 Arroyo Colorado Texas Stream Team Volunteer Monitor Training Workshop at the meeting. 

If you have any topics or suggestions to include on the Agendas for the upcoming workgroup meetings please call or send me an e-mail.

I have been getting reports that anglers and bringing in respectable catches of redfish and trout in between the cold fronts when the wind lays down.  I still have not been on the water this year but am “chomping on the bit” to get out there.   I will keep you posted.

Looking ahead,
Jaime Flores
