Harris County Precinct 4 invites the public to enjoy free outdoor recreational activities during the Trails As Parks (TAP) Summer Passport Series from Saturday, May 4, through Wednesday, July 31.
"The passport series creates new opportunities for families to participate in such activities as canoeing, archery, and fishing without investing in expensive equipment or training," said TAP Program Coordinator Kris Linberk. "We offer everything you need to get started."
The series kicks off Saturday, May 4, at Burroughs and Spring Creek parks. Canoeing and fishing begin at 9 a.m. at Burroughs Park, and archery and hiking begin at 1 p.m. at Spring Creek Park.
"Our goal is to get people excited about the outdoors," said Linberk. "The kickoff event is just the first program in the series. We will host many other programs throughout the summer that fit a variety of interests and abilities."
Anyone who completes at least six different TAP activities will be invited to a family movie night, which includes lawn games, popcorn, s'mores, and a movie.
TAP programs take place at parks throughout Precinct 4 and include fishing, canoeing, archery, bird watching, stargazing, science days, hiking, aquatic walks, and more. Passport cards will be available at every program throughout the summer. For more information or to register, visit www.hcp4.net/tap/
