Spring Break Fun at HNWR

Calling kids ages 6 - 12!  Bring your family to HNWR for free spring break fun.  No reservations needed EXCEPT for TRAM TOURS.  Craft activities available while supplies last.  Siblings are welcome; ALL children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or other responsible adult.

Something New!

New year, new ways!  Starting in January, 2017, the monthly youth nature program is set for the THIRD Saturday, January through November.  The Refuge Rocks is the name for the new program, with a different topic each month, geared to two ages levels, ages 4 - 7 and 8 - 12.

Children in the younger group are to be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult, and parents are invited to attend with older children.

Making reservations for this free program is optional; we know many folks have to plan at the last minute, but it helps us assure sufficient materials for each child.  You may register online or by calling the Refuge, 903 786 2826. (For those who have participated previously, check out our streamlined registration!)
