Hiking trails and waterways meander through nine different ecosystems, from longleaf pine forests to cypress-lined bayous.

Producer’s Favorites: Epitaph
Video producer Ron Kabele worked on the Texas Parks & Wildlife television show for 23 years. As part of the show’s thirtieth anniversary, Ron introduces us to an inspiring character, Geraldine Watson. As a plant ecologist and Ranger for the National Park Service, Geraldine played a pivotal role in the creation of Big Thicket National Preserve. She was feisty and combative, passionate and self-sacrificing. Even after she retired, Geraldine spent her time and energy restoring a remnant of the beautiful virgin forests of her childhood.
