Love ‘em or fear ‘em, everyone is captivated by snakes. How many venomous species reside in the Texas Hill Country? Who is most likely to receive a snake bite? What the heck is snake etiquette? Learn more about Texas venomous and non-venomous snakes from an expert!

The Blanco River flood displaced many creatures seeking new homes. We may see snakes in unexpected places, making this timely conversation about native venomous snakes and their habits more important than ever. Please bring the whole family and your chairs.

Join Friends for 2015

The Friends of Blue Hole membership program was created to support the Blue Hole Regional Park and provide opportunities for involvement.  Our initial year had 45 member households generating almost $20,000 in support for the park.  One of the highlights of our year was the introduction of a fall lecture series, featuring Brent Leisure, Andy Sansom and Steven Spears.  Other highlights include hosting the 4th Party in the Park, execution of an economic development study, and receiving grants from the Brown Foundation, the Wimberley Community Civic Club and the Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation.

Please consider joining the Friends of Blue Hole as a member.  Your support is vital to the continued viability of the organization and the enhancement of Blue Hole Regional Park.  After an initial year of the membership program, the Friends learned many lessons and have plans to enhance and improve the program.  We will offer more programming for the 2015 year, including the continuation of the lecture series.   The funds that are generated through the membership program will support a variety of programs for Friends, as well as the continuing development of the park.  The membership levels are names for various native species that are found in the park.
