Save the date: Texas Riparian Association annual meeting and tour Oct. 26-27

The Texas Riparian Association (TRA) is hosting its annual meeting Oct. 26-27 at McKinney Roughs Nature Park in Bastrop. McKinney Roughs is a 1,100-acre nature park where the Post Oak Savannah, Blackland Prairie, East Texas Piney Woods and Colorado River valley converge to create an unusual blend of natural resources, according to organizers.

The event will begin with a series of presentations and a social on Friday, followed by a trip to the Bastrop Fire Zone on Saturday to tour burned riparian areas with personnel involved in the recovery effort to stabilize creek banks and restart understory vegetation.
