Engage your senses and learn about nocturnal animals on a guided walk under a full moon. Hike locations and start times vary and space is limited, so please call our visitor center at 409-951-6700 to find the hike location and to register.

We encourage all particpants to bring a flashlight with a red lens or red filter, as red light doesn’t disrupt night vision the way that white light does.

Big Thicket National Preserve is located in southeast Texas, near the city Beaumont and 75 miles northeast of Houston. The preserve consists of nine land units and six water corridors encompassing more than 113,000 acres. The Big Thicket, often referred to as a “biological crossroads,” is a transition zone between four distinct vegetation types – the moist eastern hardwood forest, the southwestern desert, the southeastern swamp, and the central prairies. Species from all of these different vegetation types come together in the thicket, exhibiting a variety of vegetation and wildlife that has received national interest.
