March Meeting Program


CSSM visits Texas:
How a group of New Englanders managed to survive for a week
in the West Texas Desert

Last October, eight CSSM members set out to explore the desert areas of West Texas. While they were visiting remote locations in the Big Bend area of Texas, our intrepid explorers got up close and personal with many species of Southwestern cacti, not to mention the occasional tarantula, scorpion, wild boar, raging river, rattlesnake, singing Mexican, blazing sun, and, of course, some of the best Tex-Mex food this side of the Rio Grande.

Our March program shares this adventure with you through a photographic extravaganza that will document the entire journey. Join us for an excursion to San Antonio, Langtry (the Home of Judge Roy Bean, a Texas legend) Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, the Chihuahua Desert Research Institute, and more. So, put on your spurs and be sure to come settle in for a CSSM trip to Texas.
