If you like pina colda, and taking walks in the rain, croaking bullfrogs, colorful water birds, and the site of beaver lodges, I've got a group of people you'll love hanging-out with. The Houston Regional Sierra Club.
The group sponsors frequent outings, social gatherings, daytrips and special events that will introduce you to nature and the natural world in and around Houston.
This weekend they're planning a visit to the Katy Prairie. The Mary Manor Preserve. is a local area preserve, that provides much needed natural habitat for more than 600 species of wildlife and plants.
They have expert guides, to take you through the conservancy but, the best part is that these events are open to Sierra Club members and visitors alike.
Let me warn you, if you join them on one of these exciting excursions into the wilderness, it might end the "same old stuff every Saturday warmed over" blues.
