As part of their Aquatics Science class, students from DeKaney High School recently visited Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center to study the aquatic life there. Students collected and identified various organisms from the Jones Park Turtle Pond and tested the water quality using chemical reagents to “fix” and titrate the samples. 

With leadership from Commissioner R. Jack Cagle, Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center is a Harris County Precinct 4 facility located at 20634 Kenswick Drive in Humble. All programs are free of charge and open to the public. Harris County Precinct 4 programs serve people of all ages regardless of socioeconomic level, race, sex, religion, national origin, or physical ability. For more information about the park or any of the activities and programs offered, please call 281-446-8588 or visit the Jones Park website at www.hcp4.net/parks.
