  • EVENTS: RED-COCKADED WOODPECKER BREEDING AND NESTING SEASON MARCH 15 TO JULY 15

    In a collaborative effort, Texas A&M Forest Service and Texas Parks and Wildlife are diligently working together to help the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker thrive. At 1,700 acres, William Goodrich Jones State Forest, in Conroe, Texas, is one of the nation's largest managed urban forests and is also home to this black and white bird. 

     

    Red-cockaded woodpecker breeding and nesting season runs each year from March 15 to July 15. As a result, several trails at Jones State Forest will be closed during that time.
