Teach Your Children Well!

I just wanted to share with you all what our Wildlife Committee did last week.

Henderson County Spring Rendezvous is organized by the Henderson County Wildlife Committee along with volunteers from the Texas Parks and Wildlife, Henderson County Game Wardens and the N.R.C.S.


The Volunteers!

It is held at the Henderson County Fair grounds and consists of two days.  With an estimate of four to five hundred Fifth graders who are invited each year.  Wednesday buses started to arrive at 8:45a.m dropping students off from Athens Intermediate and Athens Christian Academy.  Thursday’s participating students arrived from Cayuga, Cross Roads, Eustace, LaPoynor, Malakoff, Trinidad and Murchison Schools.


Wow! Good job!

The students divide into 6 groups and rotate throughout the day to various stations. Our 6 stations are Archery, Rifle, Reptiles, Game Wardens, Fishing and Natural Resource Conservation. This is a lot of fun for the kids.  With a lot of new experiences, first times for most of the students and it makes for an exciting day.  We break for a sack lunch and finish in time for buses to get back to their schools before the end of the school day.  This is an event that the Wildlife Committee and all volunteers look forward to every year.
