Big Thicket park rangers lead different programs and events throughout the year. For summer 2021, some programs will be limited to 10 people and will require reservations.
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.
FREE. Come take a short 1-mile walk with a ranger and learn what makes Big Thicket so unique, from the plants and animals to the history of the people who live in this area. Nature walks start at 9:30 am and last 1 hour. Locations vary.
FREE. Engage your senses and learn about nocturnal animals on a full moon night hike! Night hikes start at a variety of times due to seasonal changes to sunset and moonrise times. The hikes are 1 hour long.
We occasionally host special events where you can learn how to fish, become a junior ranger, plant a tree, and more.
