NPS Centennial Event conducted at McKinney Falls State Park

By November 17, 2016No Comments

After being rained out in June 2016, the official National Park Service Centennial Event on El Camino Real de los Tejas took place at McKinney Falls State Park in Austin, Texas on November 5th!

The event was attended by around 100 American Heritage Girls and their families, and it consisted of guided hikes, a Junior Ranger program, and lots of learning and exploring El Camino Real!  Association staff and volunteers and agency officials from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the National Park Service were on hand.  Plus, an added bonus was having Girl Scout, Grace Vasicek and her family present for a trial run of an NPS Junior Ranger program that Grace is developing for her Silver Award!

While rain was rearing its head, and potentially looking to put a damper on the event again, in the end, it turned out to be a great success!  Thanks to all who came out to FindYourPark!
