Geocaching The Big Thicket

Geocaching the Big Thicket

February 26, 2012

We wanted to go geocaching and Village Creek SP has several caches in it. We also love hiking the Sundew Trail and the Kirby Nature Trail and I wanted to put geocaches in the parks. We decided to make a day of it!

First stop was a park we like in Woodville. We walked around a bit before finding a place to hid a cache. While wandering, we noticed some Leaf Cutter Ants. These guys always make me think of:
Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

Save Our American Raptors

February 25, 2012

Once again we headed off to Martin Dies Jr. State park for a program. This time it was a special treat. Doris Mager and her birds of prey was at the park today. In 1983, Doris created the non-profit organization, S.O.A.R. Inc, “Save Our American Raptors” to educate children about American Raptors.


She travels with several birds including her beautiful 20+ year old Great Horned Owl “E.T.” which stands for “Extra Terrific.”
