Jim Sulentich, Director of the Arboretum will present the program: "Mammals of the Houston Area." N.B. Meetings are now on Thursday. Saturday Sept. 19: Ornithology Group field trip to Bolivar Flats and Galveston I. for migrants, led by Arch Dillard. Details to be announced at Sept. meeting or call Andrew/Rene' Franks 943-7609; (w) Andrew 483-1250, Rene' 527-6408. Saturday Sept. 19: Texas Coastal Cleanup. The OG cleanup crew will be led by John Buckman. Call him at 359-4685 to find out the time and place to meet. BOLIVAR FLATS NOW PROTECTED Stennie Meadours reports that on July 19 at Bolivar Flats she observed that there was not only a sign saying "No Vehicles Beyond This Point," but Galveston County has installed a line of bollards joined by cable from the water to the vegetation line. The protected area was somewhat cleaner than the rest of the beach. Among the birds she observed were 15 American Oystercatchers, and just beyond the bollards a nesting Least Tern! Stennie galvanized support and met often with Galveston County Commissioners to establish a protected area. The commissioners are to be commended for their action. Stennie deserves our congratulations for her efforts, and for showing us what one persistent person can do to protect prime bird habitat. TAKE PART IN THE TEXAS COASTAL CLEANUP Texas has a 400-mile coastline and that means 400 miles of garbage. According to the August, 1987 issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife, which describes the magnitude of the problem, only 20% of the mess can be attributed to beachgoers. The bulk of it comes from recreational boaters, at an estimated pound per day per person, and from ships in the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately the currents in the Gulf bring to Texas almost anything dumped between Florida and the Yucatan and even far out in the Gulf. The damage to marine and bird life is tremendous. Attempts are being made to get the Gulf added to those areas in which all dumping would be barred, but the international treaty that would control maritime dumping of refuse is still being framed and we cannot hope for relief any time soon, even if the Gulf becomes a special area. All we can do at the present time to relieve our beaches of the tons of trash that defile them is to get out there and pick it up. The Center for Environmental Education has scheduled a Texas Coastal Cleanup again this year from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon on September 19, and it hopes to get at least 50 members from each interested group. John Buckman is the coordinator for the OG, and he reports that our area will be one mile of Bolivar Peninsula beach. Attend the September meeting and see John Buckman or call 359-4685 and sign up to clean up.
