Co-op Helps Construct Archery Range

A few Sam Houston Electric Cooperative employees were up early on the morning of Nov. 18 to help construct a new archery range that will become part of the Lake Livingston State Park.

“We worked with Lake Livingston State Park staff and volunteers to install roughly 250 feet of split-rail fence to provide a safety barrier for the range,” Communications Specialist Rachel Frey said. “The Park is used by many Sam Houston EC members throughout the year, so it is only natural that we chose to help with their upgrades.”

Park staff and volunteers have added new and upgraded features recently to Lake Livingston State Park. Aside from the archery range that will open this spring, there is an educational bee colony, renovated walking trails, parking areas and roads. The Park also now offers kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddle boards for rent.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department opened Lake Livingston State Park in 1977. The Park is located on 635 acres along the southeastern edge of Lake Livingston in Polk County.
