FANIN, Texas – The Second Annual Nature Fest, put on by the staff of the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority’s (GBRA) Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir, will take place 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Saturday, April 1, 2017, at Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir located midway between Victoria and Goliad.  The price of admission to this year’s event will be waived thanks to sponsorship by Dynegy, owners of Coleto Creek Power.

Before the main Nature Fest activities begin, visitors can take advantage of a “guided bird walk” at 8 a.m. led by avid birders and naturalists Robert and Karen Benson.

“We’re looking forward to introducing families and children to the thrill of nature and outdoor activities,” Wilfred Korth, GBRA’s chief ranger, said.  “We’ve collaborated with local professionals to plan some great presentations, including some on gardening for birds, whooping cranes, snakes, and insects,” he added.

In addition to a variety of exciting, nature- and conservation-themed exhibits, Nature Fest attendees, both children and adults, can enjoy testing their skills in archery, fish casting, kayaking, fish printing, and other fun recreational activities. And before leaving, attendees may take a “guided nature walk” with park rangers through the Coleto Creek Park Nature Trail.

“All age groups are welcome to join us, and given all of these sensational events, our park rangers are preparing for an even larger crowd than last year,” Korth said.

For more information about Nature Fest or to inquire about volunteering, please contact the Coleto Creek Park Office at (361) 575-6366, or email coleto@gbra.org.
