Bring the family and enjoy a nature scavenger hunt in Willow Fork Park, hosted by the Texas Master Naturalists – Coastal Prairie Chapter. A list of items to identify will be provided, all you need is an enthusiasm for nature and a digital camera or phone to take pictures of items located. There may even be some “dinosaur eggs” hidden in the park—join Friends of Willow Fork Park to find out!
Come anytime between 9 and 10:30 to join the hunt and stay and enjoy Willow Fork Park’s playground, walking and bike paths, Frisbee golf and picnic areas.
Friends of Willow Fork Park will wrap up its summer programming with a free bike tune-up and ride with Cool Cat Cycles on August 3, just in time to make sure your bikes are safe and ready for those planning ride to and from school. After the bike check and a description of bike trail options in the Katy area, Cool Cats will lead a one-hour bike ride from the park through WFDD trails and nearby neighborhoods.
