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 Preserve offers a wide range of curriculum-based programs for school age children pre-K through 12th grade. These programs are offered at no charge and only by reservation to our regional schools.

Many kinds of snakes are found in the Big Thicket. Most are harmless, although the venomous cottonmouth, coral, copperhead, and various rattlesnakes do make this their home.
