Looking to go green this spring break? Plenty of fresh air and hard work wait at Trinity River National Wildlife refuge - a remnant of the bottomland hardwood forest ecosystem.
Participants will assist with park improvement projects including, but not limited to, trail maintenance, painting, basic carpentry and other projects as requested by the park manager. Students may also learn about native wildlife and how to preserve natural animal and plant habitats.
When we weren’t volunteering around the park, we learning about native wildlife inside the nature center. It contained a zoo-like arrangement of snakes and injured wildlife, including a beaver, several foxes, a coyote, an eagle and an owl. The park’s surrounding greenery allowed us to see deer throughout our stay, and we were guided to a location to view hawks and eagles.
