Lake Whitney State Park to Host Guided Nature Walk
January 18, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm$5.00
Lake Whitney State Park is hosting a guided nature walk on January 18, 2014 from 10:00 until 11:30 a.m. on the Two Bridges Trail, next to the Recreation Hall. The theme of the hike will be related to health. The topics will include local flora and fauna that could potentially contribute to or take away from human health, managing natural resources for ecosystem health and a discussion of how state parks can contribute to physical fitness and wellness. Hiking is the January 2014 Outdoor Activity of the Month in Texas State Parks. According to Park Superintendent Chris Bishop, “Many of us begin each New Year with health and fitness related resolutions, and hiking is a great way for families to meet those resolutions together. The guided hike is free for any participant who has a valid entrance permit for the day. Entrance permits are available from Park Headquarters for $5.00 per person for everyone 13 or older. Children 12 or under are free. Entrance fees are also covered by a valid Texas State Parks Pass.
