Big Thicket park rangers lead different programs and events throughout the year. Some programs require reservations, including night hikes and canoe trips.
FREE. Join park rangers for a guided canoe trip on the waters of the preserve. The program targets the casual and novice paddler. Canoes, life jackets, and paddles are provided. Visitors are asked to bring water, snacks, and water shoes. Canoe trips start at 10:00 am and take 3-4 hours. Locations vary. Reservations open 2 weeks prior to the trip date.
FREE. Take a short walk with a ranger on a trail and learn what makes the Big Thicket unique, from the plants and animals to the history of its people. Nature walks last 1 hour. Times and locations vary.
FREE. Engage your senses and experience the park after dark! Night hikes start at a variety of times due to seasonal changes to sunset and moonrise times.
FREE. We occasionally host special events where you can learn how to fish, become a junior ranger, plant a tree, and more.
