'30', 'height' => '31')); ?> Earth Day 2012

The Trinity River Refuge Earth Day event held on April 21st at the Champion Lake Public Use Area was again a big success. The weather was cool and brisk winds kept the mosquitoes at bay. The kids had a great time participating in the "Wildlife Tracking Experience" by learning animal tracks, prostate wearing an animal mask, ask and walking like a raccoon, deer, or alligator. A local hardware store, Potetz Hardware, donated numerous plants for the habitat display area where kids could follow the animal tracks. They also got hands-on experience in handling frogs, an alligator, and turtles. Nearly 100 folks were given a boat tour of the lake while fishing, dip netting, and kayaking were also very popular. Over 180 folks, a new record, participated during the 3 hour event.
