This easy walk meets at Goose Island State Parks' Park Headquarters.  We will walk down the main road of the park and search for wildflowers.  The terrain varies from paved roads, sidewalks, and through the grass.  Some wildflowers are small, others are big, but all of them are an important part of our habitat!  A park ranger will lead the walk and help identify the flowers encountered.  There will be no picking of wildflower on this walk.  Take only pictures and leave only footprints.

Where to meet:  Park Headquarters.

Parking:  Park at the Day Use Area.  Please do not park your vehicles at Park Headquarters.  Instead arrive early and park at the Day Use Area, then walk to park headquarters, the walk ends at the day use area and you will be close to your car!

Things to bring: Wear comfortable walking shoes, insect repellent may be helpful, bring water, and a way to document the flowers you see.  Whether you like to journal, take photographs, or garden this walk is a great way to see a few of our native flowers and learn a little about them.  

Fees:  There is no fee for attending this program although park entrance  is required.  Entrance fees are $5 per person over the age of 13, children 12 and under are free, or free with a current Texas State Park Pass.  Appropriate for all ages and all skills of birders.  We do have a few pairs of binoculars available for use during the program.

Walks may be postponed or canceled in event of rain.
