Lay down a blanket, sip on some aguas frescas, and enjoy a book in the woods. RAFT is teaming up with Bonton Farms and Lucky Dog Books - Oak Cliff to host a hike-in reading party on the Buckeye Trail on Sunday, May 22nd, from 5pm 'til dark.
What you'll find:
º Books onsite from Lucky Dog Books to borrow or take home and drop off at their store later on.
º Items from Bonton Farms, grown just down the street
º Tea brewed from Yaupon leaves, native to North Texas
º A few blankets and aguas frescas courtesy of RAFT
º Scavenger hunt starting at 7pm
º Blooming Buckeyes
BYO everything else!
How to find it:
Park at 7000 Bexar Street (in the cul-de-sac) or take the 011 bus to Samoa @ Bexar and walk south to the end of the street. The trail will be marked. You'll take the path over the levees, and follow the paved trail into the forest. At the first trail marker on your left, veer from the paved route and follow the Buckeye trail for about 5 minutes until you see a clearing in the woods, where you'll happen upon the event. It's an easy, 15-minute hike at the most, and will be lit for anyone who wants to stay past sunset.
