Lake Casa Blanca offering educational programs

Laredo, TX -- Young people have the opportunity to learn about nature with a variety of educational programs at Lake Casa Blanca State Park.

"We do birdwalks. We do butterfly walks. We do dragon fly walks," said Holly Rinehard, a educational coordinator at the park.

Rinehard said children should be encouraged more to spend time outside.

A proposal on the Webb County Commissioners agenda would approve a grant application to secure $30 thousand from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department to fund similar programs for at-risk youth.

Lake Casa Blanca Superintendent Lonnie Cook said the grant would be spearheaded by the Webb County Sheriff. Programs would be run at the state park.
