For More Information…..Adventure on the Neches
Looking for something fun to do this summer, why not try a little boat excursion adventure. The Big Thicket Association runs tours for the public, field trips for schools and programs for anyone interested. They leave from Riverfront Park regularly. Here is some information from their website…
Enjoy a leisurely trip on the ecologically diverse Neches River. The Neches has been called “The Last Wild River” in east Texas. Our comfortable, open boat, the Ivory Bill, allows us to showcase this beautiful river with its unique ecosystem and dense bottomland forests of hardwoods and pine trees.
The Neches is home to more than 200 tree species, 47 mammals, 300 birds and many reptiles and amphibians. As you view nature at its best, we will relate to you the history of the river and its vast and diverse ecosystems.
Regular Weekly Tours: March through November
Charter cruises may be scheduled throughout the year.
Proceeds from public trips benefit the Big Thicket Association.
