Cesar Mendez discusses wildlife habitat with a visitor
Last Saturday's Chihuahuan Desert Fiesta was a bigger success than last year judging by the attendance at the State Park that day. Park Superintendent Cesar Mendez said, “The attendance was close to 1000 persons including visitors, exhibitors, volunteers, and park staff. Some people only attended the Chili Cook-off.”
A number of organizations including the Franklin Mountains Wilderness Coalition, Sierra Club, Master Naturalists and Native Plant Society offered educational public displays.
