After nearly a decade, Sea Rim State Park near Port Arthur is back on its feet with a new boardwalk , showers, campsites and even a six-person cabin for visitors. Hurricanes Rita and Ike nearly leveled the park and fried its electrical system. Now the park has been reborn with plenty of summer left for family getaways. Texas Parks and Wildlife has this report. The second phase of the park's master plan includes a permanent headquarters, restrooms near the camping loop and elevated tent platforms overlooking the gulf.

Everyone understands the value of European honeybees as pollinators, but Texas' native solitary bees (leaf cutter bees, carpenter bees, mason bees, etc.) are much better pollinators. Additionally, they aren't aggressive so you can install a bee block and enjoy them in your yard without fear of them defending their hive and stinging pets or children. After watching them for a while, don't be surprised if you find yourself even considering them lovable.
