Event Description: In conjunction with National Wildlife Refuge Week, Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge will be hosting “The Big Sit” event on Sunday, October 14th 2012. The rules could not be easier; refuge volunteers, Friends and/or local birders sit in a 17-foot diameter circle and identify all the birds they see or hear during a 24-hour (or less) period. We will start at 7:00 am at the Champion Lake pier and go to sunset. Champion Lake is located at the end of CR 417, two miles east of FM 1409 or about 10 miles south of Dayton. You can come and stay as long as you want during the daylong event.
