FRIENDS OF LICK CREEK PARK

 


Friends of Lick Creek Park (FOLCP) is a non-profit corporation registered with the State of Texas. Its mission is to promote public awareness of Lick Creek Park and provide resources and facilities enhancing educational and recreational uses of the park. FOLCP works with the City of College Station to help maintain the park and to increase its value for the widest spectrum of uses and users, compatible with its continued existence as a viable nature preserve.

What's in store for the park? FOLCP is in dialogue with the city about issues relating to the City's proposed Nature Center as it moves toward construction. 

Our October activity will be participation in the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History's Boonville Days Heritage Fair this coming Saturday, October 4.  Come by to help out, join, or learn more about the FOLCP.  This will be our fourth year at Boonville Days and it just keeps getting bigger.  There will be a half marathon, 5K race, musical performances, a chuck wagon cook off, and many activities celebrating the natural and cultural history of the Brazos Valley.  Check out the details at http://www.brazosvalleymuseum.org/events-and-news/news/boonville-days-heritage-fair-2014
