Big Thicket National Preserve Park Rangers will present free programs this spring.
Join a park ranger on a 1.5 mile Kirby Nature Trail Hike for a glimpse into the diversity of the Big Thicket or learn to identify what’s in bloom on a Wildflower Walk. From ranger-guided canoe/kayak trips on the Neches River and Village Creek, to programs about birds and bears, there is something for everyone. Even indoors! See the beautiful exhibits in the Big Thicket Visitor Center and 1930’s photos by Larry Jean Fisher. All programs are free of charge with some requiring advance reservation. Spring is a lovely time of the year to explore the beauty and transitions in the Big Thicket. Information and schedules are available at local libraries, and by phone at 409-951-6700.

In partnership with Lamar University, park rangers will also guide pontoon boat explorations of the Neches River aboard the Cardinal Cruise on March 6, April 3, and May 1. The fee is $15 for adults; $5 for children under 6 years old. For additional cruise information contact, call 409-880-8907.
