Big Thicket Association

An organization formed 50 years ago to preserve one of the most biodiverse lands in the world -- the Big Thicket of southwest Texas -- is holding its first kayaking and canoeing event Saturday in Beaumont.

The executive director of the Big Thicket Association, Bruce Walker, says paddlers will go upstream on the lower Neches River to explore oxbow lakes during the Neches River Rally.
