Celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of the I-20 Wildlife Preserve, the on-going restoration of Midland's urban playa and the magic of birdwatching.
In the late 1960’s, the property which is an 87 acre urban playa lake in its natural state was donated to the City of Midland with the intention of creating a park. However, the city was never able to budget the money for the park. The Midland Naturalists and a cadre of volunteers maintained the preserve for over 20 years. One of these individuals was Jenna Welch, a birding enthusiast and a member of the Midland Naturalists.
