  • Expect: Moderate 0.7- mile hike over hilly terrain- including sections of stairs. We will discuss the basics of foraging safety, plant guides, ethics; and will identify approximately 10 plants. Please note: While we may sample a few of the plants discussed, the purpose of this hike is to identify the plants and learn the basics of foraging.

  • Where: Meet at the Caddo Forest Trail. Trailhead located by the entrance of the boat ramp parking lot.
  • What to Bring: Appropriate footwear, water, pen and notebook (if you’d like to take notes). Don’t forget to put on sunblock and bug spray before you come out.
  • Cost and Fine Print: Program is included in park entry fees- $4 per person ages 13 and older, 12 and under are free. Programs are subject to cancellation in the event of inclement weather. Cancellations will be announced on Caddo Lake State Park Facebook page and through Eventbrite. Unfortunately, we cannot re-schedule events cancelled due to weather.
