Upcoming Survey: 26, 2022
Walks are led by JoJo Bradbury, Bayou Land Conservancy Ambassador and Trail Steward. All levels of skill are welcome to join. Please bring binoculars and bring your sunscreen and bug spray. We will meet at the Creekside Park West Trailhead. Typical surveys are approximately 3 miles on a natural surface (not paved) trail. There are no restroom or water refill facilities at this location. We meet under a covered seating area at the trail entrance. It’s easy to spot from the paved parking lot. The address can be input into navigation applications as: Dr. Anne Snyder Drive, Tomball, TX 77375
Walks are held on Monday mornings from 7:30 to 10:00ish AM (September - May), and the first Saturday of the month from September through May. Registration is through JoJo Bradbury (please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org). The walks are free, but donations to Bayou Land Conservancy are always appreciated.
About the Survey
Bayou Land Conservancy's survey meanders along the Spring Creek Nature Trail, a natural surface trail around ponds and tranquil wetlands, through trees and natural grassy areas, therefore you should wear hiking shoes that you don’t mind getting wet, as there may be muddy areas along the trail and a sandy/rocky stream crossing that we may cross depending on the amount of water at the time. Wading birds are frequently observed in open water ponds, raptors are seen on the water’s edge in snags or tall trees, and songbirds are viewed throughout the trail.
