The field trip has been organized. We'll be starting at 8am on Friday, Nov. 14th. The trip will start with a tour of the Lewisville Aquatic Ecosystem Research Facility. From there we'll visit a new LFS in town called the Fish Gallery. They have a great selection of driftwood, rocks, fish, and yes - plants. The Fish Gallery will also provide attendees with a complimentary BBQ lunch. After that we'll make one final stop at the Dallas World Aquarium in the West End before heading back to the hotel. Admission into the Dallas World Aquarium is $10.95, and transportation cost for the day is $15. Space for the field trip is limited, so sign up early to confirm your space.
