The Hudson Woods Environmental Education Program is a new effort undertaken by the Cradle of Texas Chapter in January 2014. It replaces the EE program previously hosted by INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA at its Chocolate Bayou Works. It serves approximately 600 third-grade students from Angleton Independent School District.
By providing students with hands-on experience at the refuge, these field trips augment the schools' science curriculum in the area of natural ecological systems. These investigations are led by Texas Master Naturalist volunteers. The program is administered by Jen Brown, Environmental Education Coordinator.
Volunteers are needed to assist with the administration and execution of the HWEEP program. Volunteer duties include providing class instruction, acting as tour guides, or assisting with program administration. To volunteer, please contact:

Volunteers may claim VT credit for all hours spent at the refuge, including lunch. Volunteers may claim Travel Time, not to exceed (a) actual round-trip travel time, (b) the number of VT hours claimed, or (c) 4.00 hours.
