We Love Urban Campfires!

No, not the gritty kind one finds under bridges and behind dumpsters, but the California State Parks variety with city skyline, marshmallows, and power point. LASHP began the Sunset Campfire program in November of 2008 as the culmination of previous year’s “Virtual Campfire” program. The Virtual Campfire program brought State Parks and its award winning Interpretive Team to the most urban of settings, elementary schools in and around Los Angeles. Now, the kids are coming to us as the Campfire really heats up against the backdrop of downtown Los Angeles.

Old-fashioned fun

This past Saturday, Park Interpretive Specialist, Thomas Carroll, really wowed the crowd with some games, songs, and a presentation on the railroad history of early Los Angeles and LASHP in its original incarnation as the Southern Pacific River Station. As, if that weren’t enough, Thomas followed it all up with a sunset marshmallow roast! Attendance at our campfires has been slowly growing and the next Campfire on September 19th promises to be the biggest and best of all.

Everybody say power point!
Everybody say power point!
Now for a little railroad history

Big finish - marshmallows for everyone!
