Turkeys of Voelcker Homestead

Who wanted the turkey to be the symbol for the national bird?  What is a baby turkey called?  Why does the president pardon a turkey every year?  Learn the answers to these questions and more at this program presented by the Alamo Area National Turkey Federation.  The program is by the dairy barn at the Historic Homestead at Hardberger Park.

Directions: From Blanco Rd, just north of PHP East, turn on Longfield Rd (by Blanco BBQ).  Turn left at stop sign onto Old Blanco Rd.  Old Blanco Rd dead-ends at Voelcker Lane.  Turn right onto Voelcker Lane and continue until it ends at the Salado Creek Greenway Trailhead parking lot.  Enter the homestead through the pedestrian gate to the left of the white house. 

If Old Blanco Rd is flooded, enter the Hardberger Park through the main entrance at 13203 Blanco Rd.  Park in the main parking lot and follow the Salado Creek Greenway Trail to the trailhead parking lot.  At the far end of the parking lot, enter the homestead through the pedestrian gate to the left of the white house.

This program is presented by the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy and San Antonio Parks & Recreation.  It is free and no registration is required.  A donation of $3/person or $5/family is suggested.  For more information, call 210-492-7472.
