Bastrop State Park is hosting an event Saturday, October 6, to raise awareness about the endangered Houston toad. This particular species of toad was nearly wiped out in last year’s drought and wildfires.
Tomorrow’s event will teach children about a day in the life of one of these toads. It is scheduled to begin at 4:00 and run for 45 minutes at Bastrop State Park, 100 Park Road 1A. During the event, participants will be able to build toad houses that they can take home with them afterwards.
The event is free, but admission to the park is $4 for adults.
The Bastrop County wildfire attorneys of Williams Kherkher appreciate these kinds of fun and educational events that help people appreciate what was nearly lost as a result of last year’s devastating Bastrop County wildfires.
