Big Thicket Association
www.bigthicket.org/

The Big Thicket Association, a 501-c-3 organization, founded in 1964, was formed to save remnants of the once extensive historic Big Thicket forests with its remarkable diversity. The Association's efforts led to the establishment of the Big Thicket National Preserve in 1974 (a National Park System Unit, the first National Preserve). Threats to the fledgling Preserve have proliferated over the years and in 2003 the Preserve was designated by the National Parks Conservation Association as one of America's Ten Most Endangered National Parks, and in 2007, the Neches River (part of the Preserve) was named by the American Rivers Association as one of America's Most Endangered Rivers.

Big Thicket National Preserve
www.nps.gov/bith

Life of all types abounds in the Big Thicket. This national preserve protects the incredible diversity of life found where multiple habitats converge in southeast Texas. Hiking trails and waterways meander through nine different ecosystems, from longleaf pine forests to cypress-lined bayous. It is a place of discovery, a place to wander and explore, a place to marvel at the richness of nature.

Approximately 40 miles of hiking trails wind through Big Thicket National Preserve, allowing hikers to observe many different ecosystems. Trails range from a 0.3-mile boardwalk loop to 15 miles.

There are no developed campgrounds or campsites in the Preserve, but primitive camping is allowed in many areas. The visitor center issues free camping permits.

Village Creek and the Neches River provide many paddling options for canoeists and kayakers, ranging from just a few hours to several days. The preserve includes two Texas State Paddling Trails: the 21-mile Village Creek Paddling Trail and the 5-mile Cooks Lake Paddling Trail. Local outfitters can provide equipment and shuttle services.

Big Thicket National Preserve lies in the path of 2 major migratory bird flyways. Bird migration peaks between March and early May. Approximately 185 bird species either live in the Preserve or migrate through it. The more sought-after birds are the red-cockaded woodpecker, brown-headed nuthatch, and Bachman's sparrow. The Sundew Trail tends to be a good place to see nutchatches, woodpeckers, and other bird species. The visitor center sells a checklist of birds found in Big Thicket National Preserve.

Hunting is allowed in 5 units of the Preserve during the fall hunting season. Hunters must get a free hunting permit from the Preserve visitor center and must also have a valid State of Texas hunting license.

W. H. Stark House
www.whstarkhouse.org

The 14,000 square-foot home was built in 1894 in Orange, Texas, by William Henry Stark and his wife, Miriam M. Lutcher Stark, prominent philanthropists who occupied the home until 1936. Designed in the Queen Anne architectural style, the house features a distinctive turret, stained glass windows, and ornate woodwork in cypress and long leaf yellow pine.

Today, the three-story structure stands much as it did at the turn of the 20th century, with fifteen rooms of original family furnishings, personal effects and decorative arts, including antique rugs, original textiles, silver, cut glass, and antique porcelain. Also featured are the Stark family's impressive collections of American Brilliant Period cut glass, pressed and pattern glass, milk glass, porcelains, and other 18th and 19th century decorative accessories. The interior of both the W.H. Stark House and its adjacent Carriage House depicts the home life of the Starks in the early 1900s and provides an extraordinary statement of Texas' social history.

The W.H. Stark House is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark by the Texas Historical Commission. It is operated as a program of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation, a private foundation established in 1961 by H.J. Lutcher Stark, the only surviving child of W.H. and Miriam Stark.

Wesley United Methodist Church
www.wesleyumc.com/

Over 100 years ago, in May of 1912, a group of people in Beaumont’s North End wanted to worship God in a church nearer to their homes, so they constructed a brush arbor at the corner of Liveoak and Cable. They furnished their humble little church with log pews and lanterns. A donated organ provided the music in their open air services and what is now Wesley United Methodist Church had officially begun. In 1913, the arbor was replaced by the construction of the Levicy Tevis Chapel and six years later the church officially became North End Methodist Church.

Today Wesley’s congregation numbers over 1,900. Traditions from each phase in the life of this church have been blended. From those who worshipped in the humble little arbor to the North End members who made the move west, to the Wesley families of today, our purpose remains to know God and to make God known.
