Last year, Natalie Caudill, Dallas Morning News photographer and avid nature photographer presented the main program at the Sierra Club General Meeting.  Her presentation was on urban wildlife.  She has now put together a very nice multimedia package on the High Island, Texas area bird sanctuaries that have recovered from Hurricane Rita.
