LET'S DO OUR PART IN THIS CLEANUP Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 15, 16: Ornithology Group field trip led by Dottie Praus and Marilyn Crane. Our first out-of-town field trip this season will be to the San Antonio area. Saturday morning we'll bird at Lake Mitchell, known for its diverse population of wintering shorebirds. The afternoon will find us birding in the Lost Maples - Rio Frio area where we'll also enjoy the colorful fall foliage. Sunday can be spent exploring this area or heading back to Houston. Please use the following information to make your own arrangements for Fri. and Sat. nights. Friday Night: La Quinta Motor Inn South, 7202 S.

We urge you to make reservations as soon as possible, since this is a very popular tourist area in the fall. For more information call Don and Lee Richardson at 661-1365. A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN We, as conservationists and birders, want to leave the world better than we found it. Hopefully, we will pass it on to people who will cherish it as much as we do. I think that one way to do this is to help where we can with groups such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. These groups are working to develop young leaders who are aware of the outdoors and our natural and cultural heritage. As an assistant scoutmaster, with two sons in scouting, I have enjoyed working with scouts on merit badges, such as bird study, environmental science and reptile study. You might work with these fine young people with topics ranging from botany to wood carving and bird study. If you have the time and can volunteer to work with Girl Scouts, call Betty Bartch at 666-6006. For Boy Scouts, get a Troop Resources questionaire from me. Our speaker this month, Sandi Hoover, will talk about attracting birds by feeding and planting. This would be a good time to share plants that are good bird attractors. If you have extra viable seeds, seedlings or cuttings of plants that can be good sources of food or cover for birds, bring some of them to the September meeting and share them with others. Someone shared some scarlet sage seeds a few years ago, and my back yard hasn't been the same since.
