Photo Club Field Trip: Lotus Flowers at Hagerman NWR

  • June 29, 2024
  • 5:30 AM
  • Hagerman NWR, 6465 Refuge Road, Sherman, TX 75092

The Lotus Flowers are blooming now if you want to try and get some photographs on your own. You can access the Meadow Pond trailhead from Bennett Lane from the South. Keep in mind that Meadow Pond Trail may be very wet and muddy to walk on.

Join us for a photo shoot of Lotus flowers at Meadow Pond at Hagerman NWR. The Lotus flowers are a favorite attraction at the refuge and a great photography opportunity at sunrise.

June 29, Saturday:

5:30-5:45 am. Meet in the Visitor Center parking lot. The Visitor Center will be open during this time for anyone needing to use restrooms. 

5:45 am. Depart parking lot and drive vehicles in caravan style to Meadow Pond Trail. We will have seats available in a van. Please ride together in vehicles for the caravan so that there are only 10 vehicles. 

No accommodations will be made for those who arrive late.

When we arrive at Meadow Pond Trail, we will unlock the trailhead gate to allow vehicles through and it will be locked when last vehicle in the caravan enters. We will drive on the trail to Meadow Pond. Meadow Pond is about 2.5 miles from the start of Meadow Pond Trail.

Sunrise will be around 6:15 am. We will spend time photographing the Lotus flowers in Meadow Pond for about 1-2 hours. When finished, all vehicles must leave the trail at the same time and no vehicle can stay behind. Vehicles cannot leave early, as the trailhead gate will be locked.

There are no facilities (restrooms) on Meadow Pond Trail.

What to wear/bring: Hiking shoes, insect repellent, water, camera and photography equipment.
