It’s almost Thanksgiving, and Frontera offers a CORNUCOPIA of b’s, from bbq to books, birds to butterflies. Beginning at 11a.m. on Saturday, volunteers will be dishing up Frontera’s delicious barbecued brisket and sausage along with beans and rice and bread and serving it hot to those who arrive to picnic on the grounds or just pass through the driveway and load up on bbq plates.
Then at 1p.m., Seth Patterson will be visiting and signing his beautiful book about the Rio Grande Delta, El Valle. It’s an amazing collection of photographs and essays that convey the history and culture of our region, and it’s sure to be a special holiday gift for many people in the Valley and a remarkable keepsake for our winter visitors.
Don’t let the special events overshadow the nature, though, as the butterflies are beautiful on these warm afternoon and a cadre of migrants (songbirds and others) are passing through the Thicket with a stop at our feeding station and on the marsh.
