Walk with a Naturalist at Park West Tuesdays from February to April

SEGUIN, Texas – The City of Seguin Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with the Guadalupe Master Naturalists to offer “Walk with a Naturalist,” a new program for adults at 9 AM every Tuesday during the months of February, March and April at Park West, 601 N. Vaughan Ave., in Seguin. The free, one-hour walking program will cover nearly a mile at a leisurely pace.

"Master Naturalists are volunteers trained by Texas Parks and Wildlife and Texas A&M Agri-Life Extension Service to teach people about nature," said chapter president Tom Hardaway. "Each week the leading naturalist will point out various natural resources at Park West."

Local naturalists have made a long-term commitment to improve the health of the forest at Park West by removing invasive plants and using the Pollinator Garden in Park West as a monarch butterfly monitoring site.

Beginning on Feb. 5, a naturalist will meet walkers at the Park’s Splash Pad every Tuesday at 9 am through the month of April. Restrooms and a drinking fountain are available. Proper footwear is recommended. No reservation is required.

While this workshop is aimed toward older individuals in the community, all ages are welcome to attend. There is no cost to attend or participate.

For more information, please contact Master Naturalist Marilyn Anderson at (830) 660-8906 or the Parks and Recreation Department at (830) 401-2480.
