Texas Nature Challenge 2015

It’s that time of year again—Texas Nature Challenge 2015 begins this weekend and lasts through July 31. Time to round up the family, get outside and connect with nature.
The goal of Texas Nature Challenge is to get families outdoors by visiting participating parks and nature areas in Texas. For Team Parker-Derasari, this was one of the appeals of the challenge.
“I think it’s great to find new places and activities to do with my family,” Lisa Parker said. “Even after living in Austin for many years, I was surprised by all the places we didn’t know about.”

Recently, four Hays County 4-Hers participated in the Hays County 4-H Clothing and Textiles Workshop. As part of the workshop, cuddle pillows were made and donated to San Marcos/Hays County EMS for children in traumatic situations.
