  • Campfire Programs Rev Up

    We held a campfire program this week with Nyta Brown, the superintendent of the smallest Texas State Park – Old Tunnel State Park. The tunnel is home in the summer to millions of Mexican Freetail Bats, and Nyta thrilled us all with their story. Future programs will be set up as we can put them together, most likely on Saturday nights at sunset in the campground.

  • Star Fest Postponed to August 12, 2017

    The weather forecast for the weekend of December 3 has consistently predicted rain and clouds, so we have put off the Enchanted Rock Star Fest until August 12th.  This (not coincidentally) coincides with the Perseid Meteor Shower, which has drawn as many as 500 people to the park for viewing, so we plan to build on that momentum to celebrate our status as an International Dark Sky Park.

    This means we have 75 very cool long-sleeved t-shirts celebrating the Star Fest which need bodies inside them now, as the summer fest means short sleeved shirts will be more desirable.  $20, contact me for details.  rcdeming@gmail.com  I’ll add a photo of the shirt soon.
