The Clear Lake Chapter has a 10:30 am guided tour of the Nature Discovery Center lead by Eric Duran, who spoke to our chapter at our March meeting. This three-acre site in Bellaire has inside and outside components and we will be welcome to both.

In addition, we are offering to include a walk over and around the Kinder Land Bridge and Prairie Project at Memorial Park. The land bridge is a gentle climbable incline. If no incline is desired, the immediate area before the bridge is also noteworthy prairie plants.

Both of these adventures will also allow us to stop for a quick bite, so no one suffers from hunger, and it is fun to break bread together anyway. We intend to be on the way home before rush hour.

We hope to carpool, leaving from UHCL parking lot in as many cars as needed. We will need a quick response to count noses and cars and people willing to drive.

Please respond by Monday, May 13.
