Things to do: State park to offer plenty of activities throughout March
By CHRIS AGEE
The Lake Mineral Wells State Park and Trailway is set for a busy March, with a variety of outdoor adventures for spring-break vacationers of all ages.
All of the events offered are free with paid admission to the park. Entrance fee for adults is $5 per person and children under 12 years of age are admitted free.
The fun begins Saturday at 7 p.m. with a program called “Night Sounds.”
Participants can experience the sights and sounds of North Texas nature through live and recorded sounds of creatures including insects, birds, frogs and mammals, while viewing accompanying slides showing the array of wildlife found in this region.
The following Saturday, March 16, park visitors are invited to take part in a study of binocular astronomy.
Beginning at 8 p.m., participants will receive a quick course in binocular use and will even provide loaners for those without their own pair.
Individuals taking advantage of the presentation will enjoy a big, Texas night sky and become more familiar with seasonal constellations and celestial bodies.
The third Saturday event planned for the month is a Kid’s Wilderness Survival course.
