      $10,000 Grant to Fund Bastrop State Park Trail Building

      BASTROP - Bastrop State Park will use a $10,000 grant from Coca-Cola to
      underwrite the continued building of new park trails.

      Bastrop State Park is receiving the grant in connection with Coca-Cola's
      "America Is Your Park" campaign, in which parks nationwide competed to win
      the most votes for a top grant of $100,000. Bastrop State Park came in 12th
      with 661,565 votes.

      "The tremendous support we received from people and companies for Bastrop
      State Park is testament to the special place this park holds in the minds
      and hearts of Texans," said Brent Leisure, Texas State Parks director. "We
      are very appreciative of Coca-Cola's $10,000 donation that will allow us to
      hire America's YouthWorks to complete new trails in the park."

      Bastrop State Park has been making a strong comeback since last Labor Day
      Weekend's horrific wildfire that burned most of the park.

      Since last year's tragic Labor Day fire that hit 96 percent of the
      6,500-acre state park, more than $200,000 in donations for Bastrop State
      Park recovery have come from a variety of sources. The donations have helped
      TPWD initiate a contract with American YouthWorks to assist with restoration
      efforts that include clearing downed trees and other debris, restoring park
      trails and constructing hand-hewn pine log bridges.

      Despite the destruction of much of its loblolly pine forests, Bastrop State
      Park is seeing the growth of some vegetation and the return of park
      customers who are coming to camp, rent a cabin, fish, play golf and picnic.
      Visitors can stay at all four campgrounds and the 13 climate-controlled
      cabins, which are sporting new shingle roofs, and most of the park trails
      have been reopened.
