The Great forests of East Texas

This is our setting, the very core of what we see around us. Over many ages, the forests about us were populated with Indians, wolves, bear, eagles and many other small and large animals. As the urbanization sprawl of Houston continues, we see the deer pushed back further to the north and east. We have seen the disappearance of the wolf. The bear is far removed from our presence. Yet much of the great forest remains. I plan to run and hike in Davy Crockett National Park next Spring. That represents our heritage, holding the fundamentals of our biological framework that makes up The Woodlands.
