The spring at Libb's Trail is currently being updated. It's an oasis in the prairie, designed to mimic the natural springs that were orginally found throughout the plains delivering fresh water from the Ogallala Aquifer to the surface. Check out the pond while you're here - you're likely to see birds, frogs and fish as well as tracks from the larger animals that use this important resource. We've even seen a Mule Deer buck cooling off in the water on a particularly hot day!
Libb's Trail Updates and Upgrades!
Libb's Trail, adjacent to our Visitor Center is a meandering, accessible 2,000 feet of paved trail that loops over several acres and includes a man made spring fed stream, dry creek bed, prehistoric dig pit and a geologic history wall as well as native shortgrass prairie areas and mesquite grasslands.. Here we can talk to school groups and have community events and programs that enrich the lives of residents from all over the Texas panhandle and beyond.
This year our focus is on improvements and upgrades to that area. Pipe fencing, a pavilion with water catchment and solar power that can be used for both education and events and refurbishing the spring and pond area are some ways we plan to bring our visitors even more opportunities to get close to our unique high plains environment!
