Having a good time at the Big Fresno Fair teaching students about skull identification.
Welcome to the new Meyers Water Bank and Wildlife Project website. In an effort to find an easier way to manage the website I’ve moved over to Word Press and Facebook. If you have any suggestions on content or format please drop me a line. So in the meantime, please bear with me as the site goes through the “under construction” phase.
Also, please visit us at our Facebook page
I’ve added the new California Bountiful and the older but still excellent U.S. Bureau of Reclamation articles to the site. Please take a look!
Please take notice when scheduling field trips the Meyers Project will be closed on Wednesdays from October 20rd until January 27th for duck hunting season. While public hunting is not allowed at the Meyers Project we are adjacent to lands that permit this activity and in the interest of providing a distraction-free environment for learning we will be closed during shoot days.
The Meyers Project has been involved for two years now at the Big Fresno Fair with the Fair Education Program. We are located at the newly remodeled and expanded Meyers Water Bank and Wildlife Tree where this year’s big attraction is the Cloud Tank. Before coming to the Fair, the Cloud Tank was owned by Lucasfilm and used for special effects in several blockbusters such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Avatar. Now it houses gigantic catfish, largemouth bass, and bluegill. Who knows what we’ll put in it next year! In addition to the Cloud Tank several other tanks are scattered around the Water Tree including one inside the Tree stocked with rainbow trout.
