Kids + Cookies

December 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CST

Grab your boots! Grab your kid! Grab a Santa hat! Bake up your favorite cookies and bring some to share! Join other parents looking to spend quality time outdoors with their little ones. Reservations required; to reserve your spot, call the office at (915) 566-6441 Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm.

Take some time to unplug, get outside, and get your “Vitamin N.” On this hike we will also get our “Vitamin CCC,” Christmas, cookies, and good company by including a cookie swap with the hike. Don’t forget your Santa hat!

Trail: Nature Walk (Tom Mays Unit) – approximately 0.75 mile

Difficulty Level: Easy . This short distance trail meanders through arroyos and hills to give a great introduction to desert plants and wildlife for kids, beginner hikers, and wildlife enthusiasts alike. The bird blind at the beginning of the trail is always a good spot for nature viewing!

Note: This trail is not accessible via stroller; if your child is not of an age to hike on their own for 1 mile, be sure to have a suitable backpack or front carrier for them to ride in.

Optional: binoculars, hiking stick, camera, and a map.
