National women’s outdoor adventure group exploring Texas
The following column was submitted by Annabell McNew, executive director of the Texas Hill Country River Region.
A caravan of cars, decorated campers and fiercely fun women may soon be passing you by on the highway. Sisters on the Fly, the largest women’s organization in the United States focused on outdoor recreation, is hosting its next meet up at Garner State Park in Concan.
While the biggest rule of sister gatherings is “no men or kids allowed,” Sisters on the Fly will be hosting a trailer tour during their visit on Friday, Oct. 5, for all to enjoy.
More than just a fun Sister getaway, this event is a “Sister Corps” event that focuses on volunteering and giving back. The Sister Corps will be participating in the Uvalde County River Cleanup Volunteer Program while they are in town and earning donations for the Mazie Morrison Foundation. Morrison is the mother of the Sisters on the Fly founders. The Mazie Morrison Foundation grants money and scholarships to women and children in need.
Established by two actual sisters, Sisters on the Fly began as a social club for women who wanted to get together and fly fish. Since its inception in 1999, the group has now grown to include more than 10,000 friends across the country.
