With the recent hire of Mary Alice Partain as Interpretive Ranger and Volunteer Coordinator, Blanco State Park is poised to begin new outreach and educational programming for all visitors to the park this spring and summer.
Programs will highlight the natural and cultural resources of Blanco State Park on subjects such as the Civilian Conservation Corps, early pioneer use of the Blanco River, animal habitats of the river, native plant ecosystems and much more.
This will be an opportunity for volunteers to the park to be involved in programs such as these and have a hand in creating more. They will also help maintain the beauty of the park by planting new natives, cultivating the existing ones and assisting as stewards of this beautiful spot.
For those interested in finding out more about volunteering in the park and the support organization, Friends of Blanco State Park, there will be an informational meeting on January 19th at 1:00pm at Blanco Library. Please contact Mary Alice Partain – email@example.com, 830-833-4333
