Lake & Wildlife Partners Meeting Today @ 9:30 a.m. (get there around 9:00 if you want coffee and doughnuts)

February 22, 2018 - some wildlife in the lake at Bent Tree

February 22, 2018 – Lake and wildlife in Bent Tree

The meeting will be held downstairs at Club Tamarack, in the Rec Room, and is open to the Bent Tree community. The L&W Executive Committee members will present the 2018 plans that they are recommending to the partners.  Quoting from the email that went out to the partners, “We hope this will be an interactive meeting and help in getting us focused on what Lake & Wildlife is all about.” 

A sensible step was taken last year, when a wildlife subcommittee was added to the L&W organizational structure.   Click here to link to a related previous post.
