On Sunday, May 8 Trail Patrol volunteer Kay Young and her grandson Kevin Love were on hand at the Visitor’s Center with their new book ““Let’s Hike to the Dinosaur Tracks at Government Canyon!” This fun book includes maps, information, activities and everything visitors need to know to prepare and explore the variety of theropod and sauropod tracks hidden in the Backcountry of San Antonio’s largest State Natural Area.
Young co-wrote the book with her grandson Love, who also supplied many of the photographs for the book. The books content was a collaboration of efforts from Young and Government Canyon SNA staff Teresa Casas and John Koepke. Dr. Thomas Adams, Curator of Paleontology & Geology of the Witte Museum, was also a valuable resource, contributing data and graphics for the book. Others who helped make the book possible include Maryann Morabito who supplied photographs, along with Jon and Wiede Cutshall and Vic and Kay Young who provided the funds for printing.
The book was truly a labor of love for all involved. You can get your own copy at GCSNA’s Visitor’s Center to help prepare for your next hike to the dinosaur tracks! Books are just $5; cash or check only please. All proceeds benefit Friends of Government Canyon.
