June 21 Photo Field Trip to Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary

The Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary in West Houston is a 17.5 acre wooded sanctuary along Rummel Creek with a restored log cabin that houses a variety of education programs reaching out into Houston and surrounding areas.Within its 17.5 acres of hardwood and pine forest and freshwater habitats, the Edith L Moore Nature Sanctuary provides an important home for native wildlife. Resident mammals, migratory songbirds, shorebirds, birds of prey and a variety of species of reptiles and amphibians live within the sanctuary. Within Rummel Creek and the ponds of the sanctuary, you can find resident bull frogs, as well as bronze and leopard frogs. Many turtles and several species of Water Snakes and aquatic invertebrates also call our creek and pond habitats home. We will meet in the west parking lot of the church on the far west side of the parking lot at 6:45 AM Saturday morning June 21, 2014. We will be able to enter the Sanctuary from a gate adjacent to the Church parking lot at 7:00 AM. I will handout maps of the nature area at that time. RSVP is requested so that I can give the Sanctuary an estimated head count be June 21. Tripods are permitted. Please contact me (Robert Green) if you have any questions ([masked] or [masked]-0091. The Church parking is one block west of the beltway on Memorial. The sanctuary is located between the church and Wilchester Blvd. Both the church and the sanctuary is on the south side of Memorial Blvd.

    Sweet! Steven Covey speaks of "sharpening the saw", a clearing of the mind, if you will. This was one of those moments!

    Such a serene setting this morning provided many opportunities and challenges. It would be great to go back this fall.

    It was very good photo trip with our group. I saw few new plans when I was there. Every body had good time.

    I had a really great time. Robert thank you for organizing this outing and I look forward to getting together on other events soon. The time of the field trip was perfect because it wasn't too hot yet and by the time it did get hot, we were ready to leave. Thanks again.

    I visited the grounds today for a personal observation.
    In my brief visit in a small area around the log cabin,
    I observe a rabbit, squirrel, blue jay, unidentified bird, and the creek. Although I not a nature photographer, I am looking forward to this adventure.
