Woodlands Trail Closure
The Woodlands Trail in the Big Sandy Creek Unit will be closed August 19-29 and September 2-12, 2014, while park staff and an AmeriCorps crew apply herbicide to trifoliate orange, an invasive non-native shrub that has become problematic in that area.
No park service unit operates in isolation. It takes cooperators, private and not-for-profit, local government, and both State and Federal, providing assistance and support for the many operational and research efforts required to manage a unit of the National Park Service. The organizations listed here have been important to the continued operations of Big Thicket. Visit their web sites and read about the work they are doing to conserve and protect environmental systems.
