Texas Outdoor Adventure Guide for Kids

By Melissa Maupin


Table of Contents and Excerpt


Here's the definitive resource to locate places where kids can roam and have fun outdoors. Texas is spread out far and wide, and newcomers may be surprised at the state's broad diversity of terrain and plant and animal life. Each section of the state has a distinctive look and offers children unique opportunities to get outside and experience nature firsthand.

This book lists and describes places with great outdoor programs for kids, ranging from state parks to nature centers and museums. There are chapters on the best sites for fishing and shooting sports, for water recreation, and for birding and other kinds of wildlife watching. The best places for nature study, environmental protection activities, and volunteer opportunities are also treated in detail, as are overnight camps and trips.

Each listing in the book is accompanied by an address and phone number and, where appropriate, a code connoting the broad geographic area of which the facility is representative—for example, the Panhandle Plains, the Gulf Coast, or the Hill Country.

If you want to help children explore the wonders of Texas' natural world, this guide will lead the way.
