Frontera will be open regular hours (8a.m. till 4p.m.) on Saturday Jan. 1 and visitors are invited for coffee and sweets in the Visitors’ Center before heading out to start the New Year right with a walk in the Thicket and a stroll through the Butterfly Gardens. Much clean-up is being done in the front beds at Frontera, and replastering has begun on the walls of the Texas Historic Landmark Skaggs House. 2011 is bright and shiny with many opportunities for visitors and volunteers at Frontera!!
