WHAT TO DO WHEN COMING AND GOING
This is a collection of interesting stops and field trips you can take on your own while traveling to and from the symposium or during down time. There are no organized field trips planned for Thursday or Sunday.
No NPSOT registration is required, but please check the link for any site of interest to plan your visit with regard to directions, hours, tickets and registrations, accessibility, and possible changes due to Covid-19, weather, fire-risk, road closures, or maintenance.
SPECIAL NOTE: Our symposium is at the beginning of regular deer season, so be sure to check for trail closings and wear hunter safety type clothing in any public outdoor situation during this time of year in East Texas, with exception on the city trails in Nacogdoches.
