It’s A Watery World
The Guadalupe River is not only a great place to swim and canoe, it is home to an amazing collection of little critters that are important to the overall health of the river. Join Park Interpreter Craig Hensley for a morning of wet and wild fun as we search the river for fish, insects and other animals that live among the rocks of our beautiful river. We’ll meet at the Interpretive Center then head to the river with our nets and buckets. Be sure to dress to get wet and as always, the program is free with a TPWD Park Pass or with a daily pass.
