The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Chapter 1191 held its monthly meeting March 10 at the Grand Ennis Buffet in Ennis. The guest speaker was Stephanie Hebert, park ranger and natural resources specialist with the U.S. Corps of Engineers at Lake Bardwell.

Hebert has been with the Corps for two years and views her job as that of an educator, with awareness of living creatures at the lake and their contribution of these creatures to our environment noted as a primary objective. The Corps of Engineers’ management philosophy is to manage, conserve and improve these natural resources and the environment while providing quality outdoor recreation experiences to serve the needs of present and future generations. The Corps is currently upgrading its facilities at the lake to handle more RVs.

In other activities, the Corps of Engineers, in conjunction with the Master Naturalists, will be hosting a Bio Blitz from March 27-April 3 and is looking for volunteers to help identify birds, plants, animals, flowers, reptiles or anything else in nature.
