Love to HIKE?
Our Conservancy team will be leading out groups on the South Side trails between 9am-11am - learn about the ecology of the Park, what makes Memorial Park unique, and the Conservation work going on. If you want to explore on your own, stop by to pick up a trail map or a self-guided scavenger hunt for kids.

.
Love to VOLUNTEER?
There will be trail volunteer projects in conjunction with Greater Houston Off-Road Biking Association (GHORBA) - Meet at the event site and go out in groups to help us in our efforts to maintain the trails. Projects will be at 9:15am (arrive at 9am) and 10:30am (arrive at 10:15am)

.
Want to CELEBRATE?
Stay and hang out before/after you volunteer or hike! Between 9am-1pm, meet the team from Axis Earth, Inc. who connect outdoors and fitness-loving people; pick up a granola bar (or 2!) courtesy of Nature Valley, a nationwide sponsor of National Trails Day; and from 11am-1pm, enjoy a beer from Southern Star Brewing Company and get some frozen custard from Shake Shack.

.
And if you want to hang out for lunch in the Park, the Ice and Fire Food Truck will be stationed near by selling yummy eats.
Park at the ballfields or Picnic Loop and meet us in Picnic Area 1 - You won't miss the tents!

Hey all! I am putting this on the calendar for Saturday morning. I have some family obligations this day so I’ll be leaving early, but if you can make it I highly encourage you to come join in. Both HTXO and BCO are heavy users of these trails and this is a great chance to give back and do our part to maintain them.
