Indian Trail Chapter Master Naturalist

Join the Indian Trail Master Naturalists at their monthly meeting Monday, Jan. 28. Prior to the meeting, from 5-6 p.m., the Master Naturalists will make bird treats with suet balls, peanut butter pinecones and fruit garlands. Then, if you can, join them Saturday, Feb. 2, as they put out the bird treats in various parks in Ennis, Waxahachie and Midlothian. Schedule and maps will be provided Jan. 28. 

All materials will be provided. Make some treats for your birds and some for the park birds. 

At 6 p.m., a brief meeting will be held followed by the evening’s program, “Vision North Texas,” which will be presented by a North Central Texas Council of Governments representative. Vision North Texas is an award-winning partnership of private, public and academic organizations making an important contribution to the future quality of life, economic desirability and long-term sustainability of the 16-county North Central Texas region. It is increasing public awareness about important regional land use issues that affect mobility, air quality, water supply and other economic and environmental resources. 

Through Vision North Texas, leaders and experts around the region have worked together to imagine a future that is better than “business as usual.” North Texas 2050 is a major new gamebook for the region and has been shaped by research and the experience of experts in transportation, land use and development, housing, the environment, health and all the other issues that will determine how livable and successful North Texas will be in the coming decades.

The program is free and follows the 6 p.m. Master Naturalist meeting, which is also open to the public. The group meets in the family life center at First United Methodist Church, 505 W. Marvin Ave., Waxahachie.
