Helton Nature Park near Floresville offers interesting field trips close to home.

Third-graders from Floresville North Elementary School took a field trip to the park recently, rotating through sessions including River Critters, Bird Beaks, WILD Activity, H2O Quality Test, Oh Deer, Nature Walk, and the San Antonio River Authority’s Watershed Model. The students had a wonderful outdoor learning experience, and want to thank the San Antonio River Authority and all the volunteers for providing this awesome opportunity to local schools.

Park Program Coordinator Kayla Gasker taught students about the San Antonio River watershed. She explained how the San Antonio River Basin is a dynamic ecosystem comprised of rivers, creeks, and streams. The students were then able to demonstrate how rain events and human activities affect water conditions.

After an interactive game, students help to create a graph based on an activity called “Oh Deer,” about deer populations and how they are affected by their habitat and food supply.

Students also identified organisms found living in the San Antonio River, and learned about animal adaptations during their field trip to Helton Nature Park.
