Dear TfSP members and park supporters,

Due to the extreme weather conditions that have impacted much of the state, we have determined that it will be necessary to reschedule the annual conference slated for this weekend at McKinney Fall SP.

I apologize for the short notice, but the impacts of this weather event continue to grow and the safety of our members is our priority.

The conference will be rescheduled to a date in the near future, you will be notified of the new date as soon as possible.

Kevin Good, President


Join us FEBRUARY 3 & 4 at McKinney Falls State Park, Austin, Texas for the Texans for State Parks Annual Conference and Award presentations. The February conference, hosted by the Friends of McKinney Falls State Park volunteer group, will begin Friday evening at the newly remodeled Smith Visitor Center overlooking Onion Creek. Registration will begin at 5 pm, followed by welcome and a light meal at 6 pm. Presentations will begin at 7:00 pm when members have the opportunity to show off their work in their parks. There will also be space for vendors who have items of interest for members, and for members to display information and sale items from their parks.

Saturday we will begin at 8 am with early registration, welcome and breakfast. The keynote speaker will be State Parks Director Rodney Franklin addressing The Current State of Texas State Parks and Future Plans. Other program topics include an update on the State Parks 100 Year Celebration events, how we can be involved, and informative programs for partner groups.

The afternoon highlight will be the presentation of awards for Outstanding Park Superintendents, staff members, volunteers and partner groups from across the state. And, just for fun, we will have a Silent Auction so bring your contributions and shop for new treasures!
