Build Your Own Walking Stick

1:00p to 2:15p
Sat, June 15, 2019
Jared Shamburger
(936) 687-2394

Stand strong on the trails and express yourself, Mission Tejas style!

We’ve all felt the envy when a visitor or ranger at the park walks past you on the trail with a cool cane, splendid staff, or terrific twig helping them along…. maybe some of us have even felt the temptation to gather that prefect branch to help us along on a hike, BUT of course that’s against the rules!

Be jealous no longer! Come to MTSP and make your own unique walking stick to show off on all your outdoor adventures!

As we craft our stylish sticks, Ranger Jared will share some surprising information about some of the types of wood we’ll have to choose from. Park staff will be on hand to assist with some tools and materials to help you customize the look of your stick and turn your wood blank into a work of art!

Because the blanks will be harvested outside of the park at a limited availability, we are asking participants to RSVP for this event! Contact the park’s office or Ranger Jared at the email address listed on this posting. We will have a variety of species, shapes, and sizes of blanks to choose from, first come first serve. Feel free to bring your own of course!

Participants are encouraged to bring water, closed-toed shoes, clothing they don’t mind getting stained or dirty, bug spray, and a creative eye! Feel free to bring your own blank to craft and style. Please RSVP with your number of desired participants; attendance may be capped depending on demand.

Meet at the Maintenance Area down the road from the Rice Family Log Home! (Near the old HQ building)

***Attendance to this event is open to the public and free after regular day use or camping fees.
