Join the Village Creek BioBlitz, 27-29 March

We are organizing a BioBlitz on Village Creek in Hardin County from 27 March to 29 March. The event will be based in Village Creek State Park, but observations from anywhere in Hardin County will count. One team is going to paddle part of Big Thicket National Park on Saturday, and there is a limited number of kayaks available if you want to join. On the paddle, Andy Gluesenkamp is going to be checking turtle traps set the day before. To register and learn more about the event check out the following links:
