News and Notes

Meeting Location. NEW!  Starting May 4, our meetings will be held at the San Antonio Zoo Education Center. We will have access to the Zoo Alternate Parking Lot just around the corner from the main entrance to the zoo. This lot is just a short walk down a brick path to the Education Center. For those with mobility concerns, a parking permit for the few spaces just outside the Education Center will be available. Photo is available at the bottom of this page.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, July 6 at 7:00pm. Coco Brennan will present a Bat Chat. Historically, bats have had a bad reputation. They are the subjects of a lot of myths that Coco will bust; then she will talk about the many benefits bats provide humans, threats to bats and what we can do to help bats. She will talk about bats in general, then Mexican Freetail bats specifically as they are the most common in our area and are the denizens of the Bracken Cave, which is just down the road from San Antonio!

Joan Lasswell has put together a nice page of photos from past SAAS field trips. Check it out!

View the award-winning public service announcement videos produced by the Olmos Basin Alliance and SARA. The videos are part of their Good Neighbors to Nature campaign. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently requested permission from San Antonio River Authority to use the Bag and Cup TV spots in their national nonpoint source pollution toolkit that government agencies around the country could use. In addition, a third video, Trash, was recently released. You can see them by clicking the following links: Bag  Cup Trash

These Red-tailed Hawks were spotted and photographed by James Richter  from his back yard which faces the back side of the Greystone subdivision near Blanco and Huebner roads.
Thanks, James for submitting this great photo!
