Optional Fieldtrips to Bamberger Ranch
Mark Kiser [email@example.com] of BCI is organizing the fieldtrip for Friday - information below - send him an email to confirm your participation -
The tour will start around 2 PM, and will last approx. 3 hours.
There is a limit of 40 participants on the tour, that's how many adults can fit on the "Bluebonnet" tour covered trailer. The cost is $10 per person. The ranch staff remind the participants to dress for the weather, as temperatures can feel much cooler while riding on the trailer. Maps to the ranch will be provided
Additionally - another great advocate of biodiversity and sustainable farming is coming to Austin next week to do talks at UT
