 On May 23, the refuge hosted an educational day for 270 sixth grade students from Hereford, Texas.  Five educational stations were set up manned by Tracy Dunn from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Ginger Frazier and Judith Jones from the Texas Master Naturalists, Joe Zotter from the Animal and Plant Health Inspections Service, Todd Montandon from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and Dave Haukos from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Topics discussed at each station were Grass Identification, Texas Horned Lizard and a nature hike, the effects of damaging wildlife, Texas reptiles, and predator/prey relationships.  A major vote of thanks goes to refuge administrative technician Kathy Payne who set up and administered the entire event and supervised the movement of the students to each station.  Harold Beierman  from Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge provided assistance to Manager Nymeyer and Biologist Smith in following Kathy Payne‚Äôs instructions and keeping the students moving to the correct station.  It was a swell time enjoyed by all.
