Arroyo Colorado

October 7, 2013

Hello Arroyo Partners:

The first cold front of the year blew into the Rio Grande Valley yesterday morning.  It didn’t bring much rain but it did lower the temperature and the humidity.  This morning, it was a brisk 53 degrees.  It is not going to last long though, they are calling for above average temperatures all week in the mid 90’s.    

I want to remind everyone that the ACC “Save the Arroyo Fiesta” and Boat Raffle is this Thursday!  We are raffling off a fantastic 190 Dargel Skout.  We are planning a great event with our partners at Dargel Boats.  We will have door prizes, bucket raffles, live and silent auctions, some awesome BBQ and the boat raffle.  Do not miss out on the opportunity to win this boat.  We need all of our Arroyo Partners to help sell more raffle tickets!  We have a bunch sold we but we need to sell them all.  Please contact me about selling tickets. 

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

The Arroyo Colorado Habitat Workgroup meeting will be held on October 17, 2013 from 2-4 pm at the Estero Llano Grande World Birding Center located at 3301 S. FM 1015, Weslaco, TX.

The Arroyo Colorado Watershed Partnership will be hosting an Arroyo Colorado Steering Committee meeting on October 17, from 5-7 pm.  Food and refreshments will be served from 4:30-5:00 pm.  Both meetings will be held at The Estero Llano Grande World Birding Center located at 3301 S. FM 1015, Weslaco, TX at Pauraque Hall in the rear of the park.

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 at jjflores@ag.tamu.edu.

I hope to see all of our Arroyo Partners at the “Save the Arroyo Fiesta” at the Dargel Boats showroom on Thursday.

Looking ahead,
Jaime Flores, P.G.
