Summer Nights- Atlatl

7:00p to 8:00p
Sat, July 08, 2023
Emily Byrd
(361) 645-3405 x2037

Test your skills with an ancient weapon, the atlatl.

The atlatl aided ancient peoples in their hunts for large game for thousands of years. Enabling the thrower to launch a dart much faster and farther than the arm alone, the atlatl was pivotal in ancient hunting techniques. Try your hand at the atlatl and see what kind of hunter you might have been!

This is a come-and-go event. Each participant will be shown how to properly use the atlatl.

Meet in the picnic area.

Program is free with park entrance ($4 per adult, free for children 12 & under).

Please note: Park Headquarters will be closed during this program. Please purchase your entrance permits at headquarters during regular business hours, online, or at the self-pay kiosk prior to the program.

May not be suitable for very young children.
