The numerous plant species in the Big Thicket provided early residents here with many things they needed to survive, from construction materials to food and medicine. Join us at an afternoon "heat retreat" to learn more these plants and their uses. Meet at the visitor center at 6102 FM 420, approximately 8 miles north of Kountze.
