We are planning that the first two weekends of each month and the weekdays in between will be the time for DIY field trips. In this way, you will be able to select a day or two, but we encourage only small groups to go together and to follow COVID-19 guidelines.
The January DIY Field Trip will be to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in Sherman, Texas.
Dates: January 2 – January 10
Place: Hagerman NWR – established in 1946 and is an arm of Lake Texoma. It consists of 12,000 acres and provides a refuge for a variety of habitats for birds and wildlife. The primary attractions are pump jacks, snow geese and other wild fowl. www.fws.gov/Refuge/Hagerman
Hagerman is a little over an hour drive from Dallas on Hwy 75
Time: Hagerman is open sunrise to sunset with no entrance fee. Your best time for photography is early morning or late afternoon. There is also an auto tour around the refuge giving the history and mission of the land.
