Twenty-two teachers and heritage resource managers gathered on March 1 & 2 for the Museum’s workshop El Camino Real de los Tejas. Traveling from as far away as San Antonio, participants gained new information and insights on the newly designated National Historic Trail. During the afternoon on Saturday, the group traveled to Mission Dolores Visitor Center in San Augustine and toured a section of the trace near Geneva, Texas.
Speakers, including Susan Boyle of the National Park Service, Jim Neal of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and Jeff Williams, George Avery, Jimmy Partin, Chay Runnels, and Christine Hennessey, all from SFA, offered participants a thorough grounding in the history of the trail, research methodology and applications for the classroom.
