300 Meyerland Plaza Mall, Houston, TX
On June 10, 2017, the Houston Sierra Club will visit the 473 acre Stephan F. Austin State Park near San Felipe, Texas. We will hike on trails in the park and see the beautiful bottomland hardwoods forests of the Brazos River. We also will enjoy wildflowers and any birds that we see or hear.
Bring money for the entrance fee, your daypack, water (at least two quarts), lunch, hiking shoes, cameras, bug repellent, sunscreen, field guides, binoculars, and clothes to fit the weather. This outing is limited to 25 people. No pets, firearms, or radios.
We will meet to carpool/caravan at 7:30 am in the parking lot just west of the Starbucks (look for Becks Prime) in Meyerland Plaza. Starbucks fronts the 4700 block of Beechnut (near the West Loop South). Look for a silver Honda Civic with lots of bumper stickers.
If you want to meet at the park the directions are:
1) Go about 45 miles west on I-10 and get off at the exit 723.
2) Turn right on FM 1458 and then go north 2 miles through the town of San Felipe until you come to Park Road 38.
3) Turn left or west and go one mile to the park.
