If you're reading this, join us for a fall bioblitz at the Timberlake Field Station near Goldthwaite, TX!

[Update: Arrive after 11 am Saturday and stay till after lunch Sunday.]

It's been pretty dry out there this summer, so don't expect a lush flora!

The bunkhouse (with electricity and restrooms) is available and has 6 twin beds (respond to reserve a bed--first come first served). I think it would be wisest to have only folks that are vaccinated in the bunkhouse. There's lots of room to pitch a tent near the restroom and shower facility.

Tarleton State University’s Timberlake Field Station is an educational and research facility located on the Colorado River in the heart of Texas--midway between Austin and Abilene. The 790 acre property has over 2 miles of Colorado river frontage and includes bottomland and upland habitats.

Here's the link to detailed info about Timberlake and the bioblitz (including directions):
