Lion Ron Freytag was responsible for the program and introduced Dr. Sherra Theisen and Jan Schultz who spoke about the Texas Nature Project. The showed a power-point presentation that showed some of the students that they serve and gave a few interesting statements that the students had to say about nature. The project helps urban students to better understand the world they live in by getting them out into a rural environment so they can see animals and plants and learn about them. They also have a chance to see they night sky without all the city lights to take away from their beauty.
