CFACT students from the University of Houston and Sam Houston State University joined together for a hike of Huntsville State Park in Huntsville, Texas.

The event helped foster an appreciation for nature amongst club members, who have hosted many informative speakers earlier in the year, so it was good to mix it up and get outside!

According to the Texas Parks & Wildlife website, one can “Lose yourself among the majestic trees and natural beauty of the East Texas Pineywoods. Rent a canoe, explore our trails or just relax by the lake. We are a short drive north of Houston, in the Sam Houston National Forest…At Huntsville State Park, you can camp, hike, bike, picnic, fish, swim, paddle, geocache and study nature. We have 21 miles of trails, playgrounds, a bird blind and nature center. Alligators live in the park…”

Outgoing Driessen Fellow Mikel Moore organized the event, and used it as an opportunity to train future leaders for next semester. Look for great things from these two schools next year!
