New Braunfels Celebrates Recognition of Founders’ Oak
Founders’ Oak is one of Landa Park’s oldest trees, dating back to the 1700s. This legendary oak was recently designated as a Famous Tree of Texas by the Texas Forest Service. In recognition of this award, a community celebration will be held at Founders’ Oak on August 4th, 2012 at 9:00 am.
This iconic symbol of New Braunfels has been witness to the rich Spanish, German, and Native American history of Landa Park, the Comal River and New Braunfels. The celebration will honor the life of this approximately 311 year old great oak with music and entertainment reflecting this rich history. Performances will include presentations by members of the Indigenous Cultures Institute, New Braunfels Gemischter Chor Harmonie and Teatro De Artes De Juan Seguin. This event is free and open to the public. (Source: City of New Braunfels)
Additionally, a local marketing and design firm, 50 Foot, has created a beautiful graphic to commemorate this event. They will generously be giving away free postcards of the design for the celebration.
Congratulations to our community and to all who have worked so hard to preserve Founders’ Oak.
