Vanderpool – Lost Maples State Park 40th Anniversary Celebration

September 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Friends of Lost Maples is happy to announce an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the opening of Lost Maples State Natural Area in Vanderpool.  Lost Maples was the first State Natural Area in the Texas Parks and Wildlife system, and has been a model for how to balance recreational needs with conservation values on state lands.

This event, eligible for Advanced Training hours, runs from 1-3 pm at the Murphy House at Lost Maples.  The program will feature speakers from the park, the Friends group and from TPWD in Austin.

There will be interpretive and informational displays about the park and surrounding ecosystems, discussions of the natural and human history of the Sabinal Canyon and the Natural Area itself, and hour-long interpretive hikes conducted by Master Naturalists from the Hill Country chapter.

Free refreshments provided!
