Gary Cheatwood offered his time and effort to show Dallas Sierra Club members the Sulphur River. Gary’s roots in the area go back 3 generations. He owns land in the area near Bogata, TX that would be drowned by the proposed Marvin Nichols Reservoir. For our first visit to the Sulphur we decided on a day trip rather than an overnight.
Since it was founded the purpose of the Sierra Club Outings Program has been to enjoy the outdoors while showing people why special areas should be saved from destruction.
