The Refuge Rocks for Youth

The Refuge Rocks is the name for the Friends nature activity program for children, with a different topic each month, January through November, 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!)
