The people who first thrived in South Texas had to know how to survive in a harsh landscape, where most of the plants have thorns, water could be hard to come by, and meals might be few and far between. Nothing could go to waste and resources often came in surprising ways. From food and medicine to clothing and housing, yuccas and agaves had much to offer. Through trial and error and knowledge passed down through generations, the Native Americans found a bounty of uses in these plants. Join us on a walk around Mission Espiritu Santo as we explore these plants and their uses.
Meet on the mission porch a few minutes prior to program start time.
Program is free with park entrance ($4 per adult, free for children 12 & under).
Groups of 15 or more, please call (361) 645-3405 to schedule a separate program for your group.
