Please join us for our thirteenth annual family day and picnic, Sunday May 7, 2017 from 10am to 5pm.
Picnic activities will include:
Proceeds go directly to children’s educational programs. Last year more than 2,000 school children and teachers participated in hands-on learning activities at the ranch that fostered appreciation and respect for the wonders of nature.
A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, donors, friends and families that helped make our 12th annual family-style fundraiser picnic another great success!
We raised $60,000 for our annual educational programs, from which over 1,500 students enjoy every year. We literally could not do as much as we do without this financial boost!
311 adults and kids of all ages enjoyed a delicious lunch, learned from wildlife rehabilitators, had fishing lessons, hunted for fossils, flew kites — and basically just had a grand ol’ time on a spring day in May that could not have been more beautiful!
Thank you again, and save the date for next year, always the first Sunday in May! May 7, 2017.
Here are some images from the day, taken by our Blanco County neighbor, Willard Gibbons – who we may just designate as our official Selah photographer!
