Texas Outdoor Family Goliad State Park

Texas Outdoor Family Goliad State Park

This is Passport to Texas

After a summer hiatus, the Texas Outdoor Family Program is back in full swing. Our state park guide, Bryan Frazier, says it offers an affordable educational weekend of outdoor learning for the whole family.

54—We’ve got a full schedule right now on the website, that goes into December. We provide the tent, expertise, the Texas Parks and Wildlife volunteers tht are trained will be out there. All people need to bring is food and a sleeping bag and that’s it. But up to six people, for $65, for an entire weekend can learn how to safely start a fire, set up and take down a camp, how to do geocaching, how to do all kinds of outdoor activities from fishing to kayaking to nature watching. We’re teaching families and groups and all kinds of people how to reconnect with the outdoors safely so that they on their own can go out and do it by themselves and really see what they’ve been missing. So, check out the website; there’s a programs link on, and find out everything about the exciting Texas Outdoor Family program.

Thanks Bryan

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet, supporting outdoor recreation in Texas; because there’s life to be done.
