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.
The Kirby Nature Trail winds through several diverse plant communities, including mixed hardwood forests, cypress sloughs, and river floodplain. Join a park ranger to explore and learn about the plants, animals, fungi, and ecology on this 1.7-mile walk. Meet at the Kirby Trailhead with water, insect repellent, and good walking shoes.
