Where we launch, the current is moderate and the river is wide so the paddling is akin to being on a pond.

Texas is home to about 4 million white-tailed deer, and about half of them live in the Hill Country and Edwards Plateau.

These animals depend on browse, the leaves and tender twigs of woody plants, as an important part of their diet.
We are hosting a broad panel of speakers to provide diverse perspectives on issues relating to border security and a possible physical wall along the Texas-Mexico border. Topics covered will include the criticality of border security, private property rights concerns, inadvertent wildlife impacts, and cross-border wildlife conservation efforts with Mexico. Our goal is to provide attendees with a thought-provoking discussion on this important matter to help all make well-informed opinions for themselves.
