February 16

As part of an annual rainbow trout stocking program conducted by Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD), we will be stocking our fishing pond multiple times with rainbow trout this winter. To help the public take advantage of this great fishing opportunity, we will be hosting a trout-fishing day on Saturday, February 16.

A Fort Griffin staff member will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m...

Fort Griffin has gained quite the reputation for having some of the darkest night skies in all of Texas. Due to the remote location of the site (although only 45 minutes from Abilene), there is minimal light pollution to hinder nighttime viewing of the stars. With such a great resource at our disposal, we don’t want to let it go to waste.

Join us on March 2 at 7 p.m. as local area...
