Liberty Jubilee 2010 (15)
Liberty Jubilee 2010
The Trinity River Refuge booth had another fantastic showing at the March 27 Liberty Jubilee. We counted 1222 visitors who were helped by 15 volunteers (many thanks) and 3 staff during the day long event. A few kids did cry when we wouldn't let them take home one of the ducklings we had on display, but other than that things went well. We couldn't have asked for a nicer day as the weather held out except for some wind gusts.
