Offered by: Big Bend National Park
There is a place in Far West Texas where night skies are dark as coal and rivers carve temple-like canyons in ancient limestone. Here, at the end of the road, hundreds of bird species take refuge in a solitary mountain range surrounded by weather-beaten desert. Tenacious cactus bloom in sublime southwestern sun, and diversity of species is the best in the country. This magical place is Big Bend... During this program, we will view the mountains, river, and desert of Big Bend, and be introduced to a few animals that live in each area. We will also learn what tourists love to do --learning to canoe down the river, or backpack in the mountains. See you at Big Bend!
