Lost Maples Visitors Center refurbished

Special to the Courier from TPWD

Just in time for fall color, the Visitors Center at Lost Maples State Natural Area will be sporting a bright and updated exhibit space about the park's geology, ecosystems and the history of the famous maple trees and their isolated stand in the park.
There's even more to Lost Maples than beautiful fall foliage. In any season, visitors can learn more about local species and see a three dimensional topographic model of the park.
A display about the lithic reduction stone tool-making process includes locally-found darts and points and was inspired by the rich presence of chert (stone favorable for making tools) in the area.
Be sure to visit the expanded park store featuring books, t-shirts, magnets, mugs, ornaments, postcards and more to help commemorate your trip.
Planning a trip for the color? Check the Fall Foliage Report on the park's website to know what you'll see.
