etween the Blackland Prairies of North Central Texas and the Piney Woods of deep East Texas lies the Post Oak Savannah, characterized by hardwood forests, prairie, savanna, and wetlands. The boundary with the Piney Woods just to the east of us is not distinct.
The pond life is just as impressive. Any summer day (and especially at night) you will be serenaded by a chorus of frogs large and small. You might find an old log covered with turtles sunning themselves or hear the splash of a fish as he dines on a careless grasshopper. Dragonflies dart about between the reeds and the cattails over the pond that is also home to numerous fish: bass, bluegill and catfish.
The best time to see Oak Creek is in the spring and fall. During the spring, especially at Easter time, the dogwoods are in full bloom. During the fall the leaves of the oaks and hickory put on a dazzling display of reds and yellows. The leaves, at last, fall from the trees and the forest opens to reveal its many secrets. As winter quietly approaches, almost unnoticed, flocks of passing migratory birds signal its arrival. They stop to rest and to feed before continuing their arduous journey South.
