Spring into Great Activities


large family picknickingDuring these cold-for-Texas wintry months, many of us daydream about spring days out-of-doors. Each coming month brings unique opportunities, so make a plan now to enjoy these seasonal activities in the sunshine:

March – Photography
Enjoy your photography hobby at a Texas state park and enter your best shot in the 2014 Texas State Parks Photo Contest for a chance to win a HERO3+ Silver Edition GoPro® video camera, a $300 retail value, from Whole Earth Provision Co. AND have your photos featured in Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine.

April – Birding
Whether you like to casually spy on the birds from your favorite park bench or consider yourself a birder with enough skill to compete in the Great Texas Birding Classic, April is an especially great time to watch for migratory birds traveling north through Texas as well as our resident species. Visiting a state park? Many parks offer a birding checklist.

May – Picnicking
Food tastes better outside, so try a picnic.
