and groups and interested Scout Leaders must RSVP. Site tours will be available each day.
Please bring your own lunch and snacks, we will provide water and digging tools. This is a fairly remote site, with an unimproved road that could cause problems for low-clearance vehicles. Because the site is undeveloped, it contains brushy areas and fire ants; it is recommended that boots and appropriate clothing be worn.
From San Antonio, take I-37 south. Exit onto Hwy 181 south to Floresville. Turn right on Hwy 97 west to CR 144. Turn left and enter through the metal gate on left side of road.
