Arroyo Colorado

September 10, 2019 

Hello Arroyo Partners, 

We have been receiving some very much needed rain.  You can almost set your clock to it; opening day of white-wing season in the Valley, and it rains!  At least we got the first day of hunting in before the rains started.  The weather prognosticators are predicting a wet fall and winter for the RGV.  I hope that they are right. 

I wanted to let everyone know about 3 upcoming events where we need volunteers!

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming events:
