August 31, 2018 Update
Hello Arroyo Partners,
It has been a brutally hot summer with no end in sight. We are looking to the tropics for some relief but that can be a double edge sword. You pray for some rain but you get a hurricane instead. Hopefully September and October will be wet months leading us into winter.
*Arroyo Colorado Partnership Steering Committee Meeting Announcement*
Meeting to be held on September 20, 2018 from 2 – 4 pm
The Arroyo Colorado Watershed Partnership will be hosting an Arroyo Colorado Steering Committee meeting on September 20, 2017 from 2-4 pm at The Estero Llano Grande World Birding Center located at 3301 S.

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming events:
I recently received the Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society newsletter and a message from the group;
It is time to plan your birding calendar for this season. I've attached our 1st Quarterly Newsletter so you can plan ahead. Our thanks to Susan Upton, Publicity/Newsletter, for a GREAT job on her first newsletter. Hope to see you at our first social Sept. 13.
Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society
I want to give a big round of applause and many thanks to the members of the Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society & Rio Grande Valley Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists. Both of these organizations have an outstanding group of dedicated volunteers. I have worked with them on projects at Ramsey Park and the San Benito Wetlands Phase II & III. It is and always be that grass-roots organizations, working on the ground that are willing to get their hands dirty get the job done. I admire their dedication and look forward to working with them on many more projects to enhance the native habitat in the Rio Grande Valley.
I am going to try and wet a line over the next couple of weeks to see what Fall fishing will be like this year. I will keep you posted!
