  1. Tales on the Trails

    November 9, 2020, 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM @ Spring Lake Natural Area

    The City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department, San Marcos Public Library, and Community Action, Inc. are partnering to bring you Tales on the Trails at Spring Lake Natural Area during the month of November. As you navigate our trails, follow the story of Kiko as she goes on a camping trip with her class and learns about gratitude. “This story is based on the ‘theory of mind,’ which is the ability to take the perspective of others and recognize that each person has their own thoughts, feelings, and perspectives. Growing gratitude leads to greater happiness and stronger interpersonal relationships.” You and your family are invited to take a self-guided tour starting at the Lime Kiln trailhead of Spring Lake Natural Area. A map of the area can be found at https://smgreenbelt.org/natural-areas/ and the entrance is located at 685 Lime Kiln Road. You can find more information about Tales on the Trails at www.sanmarcostx.gov/youth.
