'Walk with nature' at HCSNA

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Leanne Beauxbeannes, interpretive park ranger at the Hill Country State Natural Area, will lead a nature walk from 9:30 am to 11:30 pm, Saturday, Feb. 6. The natural area is located at 10600 Bandera Creek Road at the end of FM 1077, south of Bandera.
During the scenic winter walk, participants will hunt for signs of spring and learn about the evergreen natives of the Hill County. Everyone is asked to bring water, camera, books, notepads and walking stick if desired. Dress for the weather - whatever it might be - and wear sturdy hiking boots.
Participants are asked to meet at the HCSNA Headquarters and check-in prior to the 9:30 start. Regular entry fees apply - $6 for the day, $3 with Bluebonnet pass and for those ages 65 years and over with identification. There is no entry fee for annual pass holders and kids ages 13 years and under are admitted free.
Beauxbeannes urges everyone to bring a picnic lunch and stay all day. Additionally, RSVPs are always appreciated. To reserve a spot, contact Beauxbeannes at Leanne.Beauxbeannes@tpwd.texas.gov or call 830-796-4413.
As John Muir said, "In every walk with nature, one receives more than he seeks."
