Excellent! A listing of the nature parks, walks, gardens and other places to go for learning about the animals, plants and birds of Texas. This doesn't go a lot of the off-the-beaten-path sites for seeing the real animals in the wild, nor does it go into details for precisely where to find the rare birds. But for a high-level introduction to some of the cooler natural places, it's a winner--it caused a great deal of updating to my "Places To Go" list.

This is a great resource for planning family outings to learn about nature. I learned about some places to visit, and resources to find more information on specific topics.
