The Preserve Reaches Out To Curb Curiosity and Discuss the Past, Present and Future of the Preserve

The Staff of the I-20 Wildlife Preserve and Jenna Welch Nature Study Center plans Town Hall Meetings regarding Midland’s urban playa wetland, the first to be held Tuesday, September 13th from 5:30 to 6:30 in the Carrasco Room at Midland College. All who are interested are welcome to attend.

This informational session is to focus on the future use of the preserve once the trail system is complete and will be a good time for the I-20 Wildlife Preserve staff to receive feedback from the community. This trail system will increase accessibility to the preserve and make a hot spot for nature enthusiasts as well as a living laboratory for learning about water conservation, herpetology, ornithology, hydrology, and more.

The I-20 Wildlife Preserve and Jenna Welch Nature Study Center, Inc. is a local nonprofit organization that strives to ensure conservation of and provide access to Midland’s wildlife preserve for the use and enjoyment by present and future generations.
