Cane River National Heritage Area, Inc. (CRNHA) will host two ranger guided tours of Los Adaes State Historic Site on Saturday, Sept. 30 at 11 am and 2 pm. The guided tours are being held to commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month and National Public Lands Day. “Los Adaes is quite unlike that of any other place and visitors who attend the special tours can expect to gain more insight into the legacy of the Spanish colonial site, as well as the many outdoor recreational opportunities available in our local public lands,” remarked Michael Mumaugh, CRNHA Heritage Ranger.
The scheduled tour is the first special activity led by Mumaugh, who joined CRNHA in late August. A native of North Alabama, Mumaugh has a background in History, as well as Secondary Education. In the past, he has served as a Park Ranger for the National Park Service at Vicksburg National Military Park and most recently as the Park Ranger for Mansfield State Historic Site. “I am excited to join the Cane River National Heritage Area team and I look forward to bringing the stories of the history and culture of the Cane River region to a wide audience,” commented Mumaugh.
The tours are approximately a mile-long in walking distance over an unpaved trail. Visitors are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water for the walk. Los Adaes is located just off Highway 6 near Robeline at 6354 Highway 485. For more information, contact Cane River National Heritage Area at 318.356.5555.
