The Center's first fishing activity is on July 7 at 10 a.m. Those folks with a passion for dip netting are encouraged to grab a net and meet at the Center parking lot for an afternoon at the marsh.

The Center has three hikes scheduled for the month. The first hike takes place on July 13 at the Watson Heritage Area. Please meet at the Heritage Area at 4:30 p.m. The second hike is July 20 at 4:30 p.m. at Brushy Bayou. The third hike is July 27 at 4:30 p.m. at Telford Prairie.

The Center has a clinic for what hails you. On July 10 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., kids four to six learn about insects at the Catch the Crawlers Clinic. Please register by July 6.

The Fishing Frenzy Clinic for kids entering grades five through eight this fall takes place on July 16 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The anglers cast lines in Lost Island Lake and learn about different techniques for landing the big one.
